Can you boot into your 6.2 system and run 'rpm --rebuilddb' as root? Then try
the upgrade again and see if that fixes the problem. I think that there may be
some inconsistency in your RPM database, and running 'rpm --rebuilddb' should
fix any problems that might exist.
BTW, this looks like a dupe of bug #37099.
I would do that, but now I have changed SCSI cards and can no longer boot
directly into that installation. I see how it could be a RPM dbase problem.
I think I will follow the advice in #37099, or I can just do a clean install of
7.1 as well. Thanks for the help. Sorry I did not find the other bug report, it
did not show up in my search.
Ok. I'm going to close the bug now, but feel free to add more information if
you continue to have problems.
