[SOLVED] CentOS 6.9 glibc multiple architecture

Post by spiketechnics » 2017/10/23 10:18:28

Hi,

We want to update our server, but we are receiving an error when updating glibc. It says: Multilib version problems found.

Code: Select all

[root@server ~]# yum list all glibc
Installed Packages
glibc.i686                      2.12-1.209.el6                         @base
glibc.x86_64                    2.12-1.209.el6                         @base
glibc.x86_64                    2.12-1.209.el6_9.2                     installed
Available Packages
glibc.i686                      2.12-1.209.el6_9.2                     updates

Code: Select all

[root@server ~]# rpm -qa | grep glibc
glibc-headers-2.12-1.209.el6.x86_64
glibc-2.12-1.209.el6.i686
glibc-common-2.12-1.209.el6_9.2.x86_64
glibc-common-2.12-1.209.el6.x86_64
glibc-debuginfo-common-2.12-1.166.el6_7.7.x86_64
glibc-devel-2.12-1.209.el6.x86_64
glibc-2.12-1.209.el6_9.2.x86_64
glibc-2.12-1.209.el6.x86_64
glibc-debuginfo-2.12-1.166.el6_7.7.x86_64

We are runnning CentOS 6.9 (Final) x64 .

What can I do to solve this?

Best regards,
Joost Lauwen

# rpm -qa | grep glibc

Your installation is broken: two versions of glibc.x86_64 are installed.

Post the output from package-cleanup --dupes

Oh, and please use text not images and post all of the output not just the last few lines.

OK, so that looks like you have had a yum update fail drastically - killed or otherwise. To recover from that, first backup the contents of /var/lib/rpm and /var/lib/yum then use rpm -e --nodeps --justdb $newerpackage on each one of the duplicate packages to remove ONLY the newer version of each one, leaving the older version alone. Once the duplicates have gone you should be able to rerun yum update and it will re-update to the newer versions and that will ensure that the new version is correctly installed.

Yes, I was updating our software through PuTTY and suddenly the connection was lost and it said:
PuTTy: Software caused connection abort
This happend when updating glibc.

Can i just use this code rpm -e --nodeps --justdb $newerpackage or should I change the packagename at the end?

$newerpackage was meant to show that you needed to substitute the newer package name and version in the command.
