View Full Version : Yum update problems

6th November 2007, 03:49 AM

Some times (actually getting too much recently) I get this error after I finish the download of the update and b4 the installation or update:

Running rpm_check_debug
ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
Package R needs perl(File::Copy::Recursive), this is not available.

shouldn't be resolving all dependencies automatically?

I used the following command:

yum -t -y --skip-broken update

any help is very much appreciated,

I have another question, about how to update or install from already downloaded files, like in this instance, I finished the downloads, and the files must be cached somewhere, where I can do the update from, or in case I have a network, how can I update one machine, and take the cached files to update from on the other machines? This will really help me,

Thank you very much for helping out in advance,

Kind Regards,

Can you tell us which version of Fedora you are using ?
do a
yum clean all
yum check-update
and post the complete output.
