    Problem with yum update.

    I have some problem with yum on one of the VPS.

    I hope some of you can help me with this.

    there was a centos problem with python the other day, it has been sorted though.

    try "yum clean all" before the update.

    I was having this problem today, for some reason you have to stop the mysql service and then run the update and start mysql back up again.

    As mentioned above... Try yum clean all or yum clean metadata

    Should correct the issue.
