    Hello :)

    It looks like your RPM database is not responding:

    Look for any stale RPM and YUM processes with commands such as:

    ps aux|grep rpm
    ps aux|grep yum
    Use the "kill" command to terminate any processes that you are not actively running. Then, rebuild the RPM database via:

    mkdir /root/old_rpm_dbs/
    mv /var/lib/rpm/__db* /root/old_rpm_dbs/
    rpm --rebuilddb
    Proceed to attempt another cPanel update if this completes successfully:

    /scripts/upcp --force
    Thank you.
