Tried these steps: http://www.how2centos.com/upgrading-centos-5-5-to-centos-5-6/

When I run yum update, I get the below


Its not really 5.6, because I was originally on 4.8, then 5.3 and now these errors (even though it shows 5.6)

root@server [~]# cat /etc/redhat-release CentOS release 5.6 (Final)

root@server [~]# uname -a Linux server.domain.com 2.6.9-89.0.19.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Jan 8 06:32:22 EST 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


The link worked for me.

You don't provide the full output but one problem is that something is going wrong with the openssl package (which provides libcrypto.so.6). Look through the full output of yum update for mentions on openssl. What is the output of rpm -q -i openssl.x86_64 (assuming you are using the x86_64 architecture).

The guide recommends running yum update but it is better to use yum upgrade so that obsolete packages are handled.
