Hi,

I got this error when I run "Update Server Software"
Error: Missing Dependency: bind = 30:9.3.3-10.el5 is needed by package bind-chroot

In my yum.conf file I have following exclude:
exclude=apache* bind-chroot courier* dovecot* exim* httpd* mod_ssl* mysql* nsd* perl* php* proftpd* pure-ftpd* spamassassin* squirrelmail*

My server is CentOS 5 with WHM 11.23.2

Regards
Martin

Same problem here. It's caused by yum trying to upgrade the bind package while the bind-chroot package is in the exclude= directive in /etc/yum.conf.
Since bind-chroot is excluded, yum is unable upgrade it, and it depends on the older version of bind.
I opened a ticket with cpanel (since the exclude= directive is set by them), and I was told that using bind-chroot isn't recommended anyway.
Doing 'yum remove bind-chroot' solved the problem for me. I guess if you want to keep using bind-chroot, just prevent it from being excluded by editing /etc/yum.conf and yum will upgrade it.

What is bind-chroot exactly used for? Tried to look around google with no clues. I removed it for now.

What was your ticket number?
