4.Select "Upgrade" for type of install. (Choose customized packages or not)
Actual results:

Expected results:

Expected it to contine and upgrade the system.

Additional info:

I know my rpm database is corrupt, but "rpm --rebuilddb" does not clean it up. 
   I have packages that I know are installed because the work fine, but rpm -q
<the known installed package> yields the message that it is not installed.
