Hello everyone,

I had an issue with one of three servers upgrading from 6.4 to 6.5. It did 
not have the CR repo enabled.

It failed dueing install, but I didn't catch the error (bad, bad, I know). 
OK, so it told me to run yum-complete transaction. After going through and 
figuring out what it had to do, it stops with this error:

(etc, etc...)

  You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
** Found 216 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:

Any ideas on how to fix this? A "yum update" tells me to
run yum-complete-transaction.

For those who respond, I thank you for your time,
I appreciate it!
