yum update fails

October 11, 2010 Leave a comment

If you are trying to update with yum and get a dependency failure, here is a solution that can
work. For example, if you get a dependency failure when trying to update perl, try this:
yum downgrade perl, after perl is downgrades, then run yum update. Most likely, perl will
update itself to the newest version. This works sometimes when you have used a different repo
or installed a version out of sync with the repository.
