I think this is the same issue as in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1187057

Can you try the instructions there and let us know if it fixes your problem?

Comment 2 Ralph Bean 2015-02-18 17:18:46 UTC
Yeah, this is not a bug.  You 'sudo pip install'd urllib3 at one point and that is conflicting with rpm.

Please 'sudo pip uninstall urllib3' and then try yum installing again after that.

Comment 3 mbw 2019-09-12 05:53:41 UTC
This fixed my issue as well. I wanted to thank you for posting this as it would have taken us much longer to isolate the issue. Fantastic work.

Comment 4 Michael Watters 2019-09-27 14:18:00 UTC
Just ran into this as well.  It would be nice if the package could be updated to detect if urllib3 has been installed through pip and then show an error message with instructions on what to do.  I also disagree that this is not a bug, update failures are causing application failures which leads to down time.

Thank you very much Ralph!

Failure to upgrade urllib3 bugged me for a while. Now it is solved thanks to your post.

Comment 6 tech2blog 2020-02-01 19:31:36 UTC
My issue is also resolved after running > `sudo pip uninstall urllib3`.

Thanks for the help.
