System: Red Hat 6.5
I have a problem with libgcc, which is apparently installed in 2 different versions on my machine.
Anyway, when I try to install literally anything, I am unable to do so, because of the error:
Error: Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root cause is something else and multilib version checking is just pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.: 1. You have an upgrade for libgcc which is missing some dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to solve this by installing an older version of libgcc of the different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with --exclude libgcc.otherarch ... this should give you an error message showing the root cause of the problem. 2. You have multiple architectures of libgcc installed, but yum can only see an upgrade for one of those arcitectures. If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you can remove the one with the missing update and everything will work. 3. You have duplicate versions of libgcc installed already. You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors. ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing much more problems). Protected multilib versions: libgcc-4.4.7-4.el6.i686 != libgcc-4.4.7-4.1.el6_5.x86_64 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
I am aware of the fact that this question has already been asked and answered to, for example here:
However the answer to this question does not work for me. When I try to run
yum install libgcc.x86_64 libgcc.i686
I get exactly the same error (shown above).
I also tried to uninstall the libgcc package, but it has a lot of dependencies, so I cannot do it using yum. When I deleted this pacage using
rpm -e --nodeps rpm -e --nodeps it made really ugly mess and broke yum in the first place.
just to be clear, I attach:
bash-4.1# yum list all libgcc Loaded plugins: product-id, subscription-manager Installed Packages libgcc.x86_64 4.4.7-4.1.el6_5 _some_value Available Packages libgcc.i686 4.4.7-4.el6 _some_another_value
Could you please help me in solving this difficulty? I ask because I have no clue what should I do next. Thanks in advance for looking into it!
