I get an email alert whenever there's something to update, and typically do them that day. This tends to happen most days.

For whatever reason I've had no alerts since 20th July until today (I believe I did a manual yum update the other day just to check, and sure enough there was nothing to do).

Today's update lists a LOT of things. Is this just a backlog from 20th July onwards? Why wasn't yum updating anything in that time?

Has there been some major security flaw that has caused everyone to update their software? Or has something gone wrong in my system? Or have the repos been compromised?

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Updates downloaded, use "yum -C update" manually to install them.

As you can see from the output, the release version has changed from 6.6 to 6.7:

centos-release.x86_64                 6-7.el6.centos.12.3                base

So this is perfectly normal.

The key thing to pick up is centos-release.x86_64, which is being upgraded to 6-7.el6.centos.12.3. You haven't said which subversion of CentOS you're on, but assuming you're up to patch, you're on 6.6 - this is the new 6.7 release hitting the mirrors.

Those of us using the cr (continuous release) repository saw many of these packages arrive late last week.


Or has something gone wrong in my system?

The error you are seeing is due to the fact that php56u-pecl-imagick is compiled against ImageMagick, which had a major update in RHEL/CentOS 6.7. The problem was quickly corrected by IUS. More details can be found here:
