Updating rpm

This command have no effect: My SQL and httpd are installed using yum, but some time ago I backuped binaries and config (without --archive option) and unzipped into new installed system (yum and yum configs to). Once you get your dependency chain cleaned up, yum update should work normally.RPM (Red Hat Package Manager) is an default open source and most popular package management utility for Red Hat based systems like (RHEL, Cent OS and Fedora).If you run it without any package name, $ sudo yum install vim-X11 ...================================================================================================================================================================= Package Arch Version Repository Size ================================================================================================================================================================= Updating: vim-X11 x86_64 2:7.4.417-1.fc19 updates 1.2 M Updating for dependencies: vim-common x86_64 2:7.4.417-1.fc19 updates 5.9 M vim-enhanced x86_64 2:7.4.417-1.fc19 updates 1.0 M ....This utility only works with packages that built on format.Please remember you must be root user when installing packages in Linux, with the root privileges you can manage rpm commands with their appropriate options.Simply including the new files in the deployment package will cause rpm conflicts.

To the best of my knowledge, RPM is not designed to permit updating / replacing existing files, so anything that you do is going to be a hack. If $1 is 2 or more - then we're upgrading this package and $1 represents the number of packages already installed.

For example I have installed mysql and httpd, but when I'm trying to 'yum update' then yum throws error that package is available but not installed.

So, how can I update database of installed software? There's definitely a language barrier issue here -- the rest of this post is going to assume you installed My SQL and Apache through yum, not from source, and then yum update broke on you. If a package is available but cannot be installed, that usually means that one of its dependencies is faulty, which happens often if you have both the i386 and x86_64 versions of a package installed and you somehow end up with different versions.

Are you using the Fedora supplied RPM's or using something compiled by the VBox team?

I'll leave this to a Fedora expert to answer but this usually happens when either the original rpm was installed multiple times and the installed file database has duplicate entries or the package isn't compiled correctly (sometimes a name mis-match) and doesn't understand that it is a new version of an existing package.
