Remove opendlap package using Yum

I'm trying to deinstall openldap. It is corrupt and I want to reinstall. How to do that using Fedora?

Following instructions found on the internet I tried
su -c 'yum remove openldap'

Unfortunately that command fails because it seems to be also the command to deinstall yum, which isn't allowed. I don't understand the syntax I must admit but I'm new to this (Fedora).

Is it possible to deinstall openldap? How?

Btw I installed using
su -c 'yum install openldap'

BTW, the output of remove openldap ends with
"Error: Trying to remove ""yum", which is protected."

So that led me to conclude that the command yum remove openldap is also the command to deinstall yum.

Turns out to be a major bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=476490

Can only be removed by risking your whole system. Sucks!

No, it's not. It's just trying to remove everything which requires the libraries which you are trying to remove.

Please read this thread carefully. It's a feature and not a bug ;-)

What makes you think it is corrupt?

You could download the archive and replace the files manually.

Code:
/etc/openldap
/etc/openldap/cacerts
/etc/openldap/ldap.conf
/usr/lib64/liblber-2.4.so.2
/usr/lib64/liblber-2.4.so.2.7.1
/usr/lib64/libldap-2.4.so.2
/usr/lib64/libldap-2.4.so.2.7.1
/usr/lib64/libldap_r-2.4.so.2
/usr/lib64/libldap_r-2.4.so.2.7.1
