I am running Centos 4 fully updated (as of 1 week ago)


I tried to use yum last night and I got this error:


[root at localhost share]# yum update

KeyError: 'epoch'


I removed yum and re-installed it from the RPM on the install disk.


I googled but I did not find anything that made sense to me.


Thank you for any help anyone can provide.
