I am receiving the following errors when running yum update. I began receiving these errors after I had installed the incorrect EPEL package (epel-release-6-8.noarch). I have since removed and installed epel-release-7-5.noarch instead.

Can anyone help me to resolve this issue?

Running CentOS 7

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
  • You have removed incorrect repo but haven't removed incorrect rpms installed by that repo. Its still showing that many el6 packages. python-jsonpointer-1.0-3.el6.noarch, python-boto-2.34.0-4.el6.noarch (epel) etc. Remove all of those and issue will be fixed. – Nehal Dattani Jan 7 '15 at 8:11
  • How do I go about first listing and then uninstalling all of those rpms? I've tried the "rpm -ev" but to no avail. Its reading "error: package xyz.123.noarch is not installed". I have also tried "yum search el6" but none of the previously listed rpms show up. – Ryan Prentiss Jan 7 '15 at 8:30

You need to:

  1. Clear your yum cache.

    yum clean all
    
  2. Resync your installed packages with what's in the repos.

    yum distro-sync
