    Angry exim has failed !! Error : package exim is not installed!!

    Hello All,
    Yesterday I tried to upgarde cpanel on my RedHat 7.3 server.Fortunately it upgraded the cpanel to 9.4 version but left me in bigger mess.When I looked in service status i found exim,imap both failed(showing red balls).
    Along with exim it is showing message that package exim is not installed.Now I am wondering how this happened?.I upgraded the cpanel only nothing else to 9.4.
    I tried to build apache and upgarding cpanel so that exim get installed but it failed.
    I tried /scripts/exim3 and /scripts/exim4 but they are ginving error:

    Resetting Exim to cPanel Defaults and Installing the Latest Version
    `/etc/localdomains' -> `/etc/localdomains.eximreset'
    error: package exim is not installed
    Retrieving http://diff.cpanel.net/exim-cpanel6....write.i386.rpm

    Waiting for exim to restart..............finished.



    exim has failed, please contact the sysadmin.
    What is problem?How should I install exim package and get imao etc working on server?
    Please help!!
