I'm trying to find a YUM package. My system runs a CentOS-7.2.1511 (yes, it's a old version, but some software is "stable" with this CentOS version). Now, I'm looking for a package with YUM. When a run "yum provides */system-config-lvm", I get this error:
[root at mysystem ~]# yum provides */system-config-lvm

_rpm.error: invalid header data

I have run "yum clean metadata" and "yum clean all", but error message still appears.

What can I do?
