Hi I'm having an issue with yum, I seem to have broken dependencies? I have a general knowledge of Linux but I'm not sure how to fix this. Running CentOS 6.6.
Here's the output from yum:
yum update Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Setting up Update Process Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * epel: mirror.symnds.com Resolving Dependencies --> Running transaction check ---> Package ntpdate.x86_64 0:4.2.6p5-1.el6.centos will be updated --> Processing Dependency: ntpdate = 4.2.6p5-1.el6.centos for package: ntp-4.2.6p5-1.el6.centos.x86_64 ---> Package ntpdate.x86_64 0:4.2.6p5-2.el6.centos will be an update --> Finished Dependency Resolution Error: Package: ntp-4.2.6p5-1.el6.centos.x86_64 (@base) Requires: ntpdate = 4.2.6p5-1.el6.centos Removing: ntpdate-4.2.6p5-1.el6.centos.x86_64 (@base) ntpdate = 4.2.6p5-1.el6.centos Updated By: ntpdate-4.2.6p5-2.el6.centos.x86_64 (updates) ntpdate = 4.2.6p5-2.el6.centos You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem ** Found 2 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows: ntp-4.2.6p5-2.el6.centos.x86_64 is a duplicate with ntp-4.2.6p5-1.el6.centos.x86_64 ntp-4.2.6p5-2.el6.centos.x86_64 has missing requires of ntpdate = ('0', '4.2.6p5', '2.el6.centos')
Running yum --skip-broken doesn't seem to do anything. I'm assuming this is important to resolve due to the NTP exploit that was recently found.
