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

i have tried install ing the mod_wsgi with easy apache 4 and then running both yum clean all /scripts/upcp --force

is there a way to work around this issue?

thx in advance

Hey there! We *really* don't recommend trying this type of upgrade on a cPanel system.

There is likely an httpd* exclude entry in the /etc/yum.conf that is keeping the httpd-mmn package from being installed, which is there to prevent conflicts with the cPanel-provided Apache tools. You're welcome to remove that limitation, but you're likely to run into further package conflicts and you'll be proceeding at your own risk.

Unfortunately no - we recommend a full migration to ensure things go well.

We do have the Transfer Tool that will help you move all the files and even many of the server configurations, so that is your best and easiest option. If you are running CentOS 32-bit, we'd be happy to perform the migration for you.
