Yum update error

got the update flashing on home page but despite starting it it pop flashing again after a bit. done a yum update from ssh and managed to update most of the file, but at the end i get this:

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I have run the 2 suggestions at the end but still getting error.

any clue?


I have something similar; since two days back I’m receiving the following e-mails from te Anacron daemon:


Failed to check for updates with the following error message:
Failed to build transaction: initscripts conflicts with rockstor-release-3-8.16.el7.x86_64

This seems to have started after the following alert from Cron:
