Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
yum update fails when request package is present on system:
ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:
libsmbios is needed by (installed) smbios-utils-bin
(1, [u'Please report this error in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/enter_bug.cgi?pro duct=Red%20Hat%20Enterprise%20Linux%205&component=yum'])
[root@phusem-s3704 ~]# rpm -qa |grep libsmbios
Probably not a bug in yum. Could you post a complete information yum shows you? It is probably doing something like trying to replace libsmbios with a newer package that does not provide the required symbol.
Reducing the severity.
could you provide more details about the bug? Is it still an issue?
This is likely due to a preexisting problem on the system (Eg. using --nodeps, or a transaction abort). Eg. see:
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
