Description Chris Caudle 2017-06-09 17:39:20 EDT
Description of problem: Ran dnf to update new packages.  Found libdb-5.3.28-21 as an available update, but after upgrade rpm and dnf crash with error in Berkely DB library.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 5.3.28-21

How reproducible: RPM and dnf crash every time now when run sudo or under su. Can run as normal user, but cannot update packages from my normal user account.  Occurred on two separate systems which were updating simultaneously.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf upgrade libdb libdb-utils
2. sudo dnf check-update 
3. error: rpmdb: BDB0113 Thread/process 14829/140660169317184 failed: BDB1507 Thread died in Berkeley DB library

Actual results:
rpm crashes in Berkeley DB

Expected results:
rpm database is still accessible

I was able to recover with sudo rpm --rebuilddb, so the severity of the bug can be reduced.
