There is strangeness about.
First thing this morning, I see the chatter about updates and after a
bit did a "yum check-update". Nothing listed. I waited and tried,
waited and tried, finally moved /var/cache/yum out of the way and did
the check-update again, allowing the cache to rebuild. This time, I got
files listed, did a "yum update" and got
Install 12 Package(s)
Update 322 Package(s)
Remove 2 Package(s)
Total download size: 579 M
Is this ok [y/N]: n
but had already grown wary and refused the update. Later, I decided to
do a download only "yum update --downloadonly
and it bombed with the nss dependency msg that others have seen. I DO
have base and update repos enabled.
It appears that the nss and/or nss-devel packages must be playing
peek-a-boo somehow. Is it possible that one of the mirrors is short a
package or maybe has a bad copy?
