    yum update Protected multilib versions

    Mihaly Demeczky-Oracle

      Hi, I got a devops VM with OL7.6 dev image.

      The first yum update finished with this error:

      "

      Error:  Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root

             cause is something else and multilib version checking is just

             pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:

       

               1. You have an upgrade for libvirt-libs which is missing some

                  dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to

                  solve this by installing an older version of libvirt-libs of the

                  different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture

                  yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package

                  requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with

                  --exclude libvirt-libs.otherarch ... this should give you an error

                  message showing the root cause of the problem.

       

               2. You have multiple architectures of libvirt-libs installed, but

                  yum can only see an upgrade for one of those architectures.

                  If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you

                  can remove the one with the missing update and everything

                  will work.

       

               3. You have duplicate versions of libvirt-libs installed already.

                  You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.

       

             ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove

             this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to

             do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing

             much more problems).

       

             Protected multilib versions: libvirt-libs-4.5.0-10.el7.i686 != libvirt-libs-4.5.0-23.el7.x86_64

       

      "

       

      What is your  suggestion.
