I have a Dell 2950 with Centos 7 and Dell OMSA packages installed. When I try to update the server with "yum update" I have the following dependences issue:

Error: Package: dell_ie_rac_5-8.1.0-4.1.128.el7.x86_64 (@dell-omsa-indep)
       Requires: srvadmin-racadm5 = 8.1.0

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

What is the safer solution in this case? Ignore/Skip the dependences is not an option for me

  • Contact the repository maintainer. They appear to have broken something. – Michael Hampton Jul 30 '16 at 20:40
  • I'll try to write to the Dell support since the repository is maintained by them but I'm pretty sure that they will reply that everything is ok – DarkVex Jul 31 '16 at 18:45
  • Ha. This would not be the first time they'd broken their repo. – Michael Hampton Jul 31 '16 at 18:54
  • Nice to hear :D I wrote to them. I hope they will be fix quickly :) – DarkVex Jul 31 '16 at 19:12

It seems that Dell doesn't want to fix their repo issue so the only solution that I have found is that post (http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/servers/f/177/t/19952237)

yum remove dell_ie_rac python-smbios
yum update
