Hello everybody,
I think this is a simple question.
Here my situation: i have some duplicated packages:

Code:
rpm -q --queryformat "%{name}.%{arch}\n" exim
exim.x86_64
exim.x86_64
So i think i should remove both packages like this

Code:
rpm -ev --allmatches exim
and reinstall it whit

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix
Am I right? Will this break something, or it's safe?

Thanks in advance.

You can remove both of them with (just in the rpm database, but not the filesystem) by doing the following:

Code:
rpm -e --justdb --nodeps exim-4.80.1-1.cp1136
rpm -e --justdb --nodeps exim-4.80.1-3.cp1136
Then reinstall and everything should be back in sync.

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix
You should open a ticket to investigate how your rpm database was corrupted. This usually happens when the update failed to complete for some reason.
