cPanel: Error: Package system can not be repaired automatically

June 7th, 2009

If, like myself, you have recently upgraded the cPanel control panel system on your Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 server and received the error message “Error: Package system can not be repaired automatically” when upgrading Apache, then it’s probably caused by a problem with either the RedHat Package Manager (RPM) or YUM. To fix it, first ensure that no RPM or yum updates are running:
ps auxwww | grep yum
ps auxwww | grep rpm

If any are running, find out why and kill -9 them if they are zombie processes. Now you just need to rebuild the RPM database:
rm /var/lib/rpm/__db.* -rf
rpm --rebuilddb

This process may take some time (between 1 and 30 minutes depending on your server speed and the number of packages installed). Once it’s completed, you should be able to upgrade without problems.
