You upgraded the rpm packages. Between Alpha and Rawhide,
they made changes to rpm. Do the following:
- cp -av /var/lib/rpm /var/lib/rpm.bak
- rm -f /var/ilb/rpm/__db*
- rpm -vv --rebuilddb
This will convert the old rpmdb to the newer format, using the newer db api.
Provided no errors were encountered, you can rm -rf /var/lib/rpm.bak
and proceed with your yum updates.
Also, yum seems to have an issue when updating the bash
I would advise not updating that along with others as you'll have a small mess
on your hands if yum breaks on you like it does me.
