    I tried to update my OS from WHM > Software > System Update as well as SSH.
    I am getting pre-existing rpmdb problem(s) error.

    Below is the output.

    Code:
    Requires: ea-apr-util(x86-64) = 1.5.2-13.13.8.cpanel

     You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

    Try,

    mkdir /root/old_rpm_dbs/
    mv /var/lib/rpm/__db* /root/old_rpm_dbs/
    rpm --rebuilddb

    This is not an error that would indicate a corrupt RPM database; however, I wanted to mention that cPanel does provide a script(/scripts/find_and_fix_rpm_issues) to essentially do the same as what @HostingH recommended, but a bit safer.

    Code:
    ** Found 1 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:
    ea-apr-util-devel-1.5.2-13.13.7.cpanel.x86_64 has missing requires of ea-apr-util(x86-64) = ('0', '1.5.2', '13.13.7.cpanel')
    
    It seems that `ea-apr-util' and `ea-apr-util-devel' versions are out of sync. Could you provide the output of `rpm -qa|grep ea-apr-util'? I have the following on my test box:
    Code:
    # rpm -qa|grep ea-apr-util
    ea-apr-util-1.5.2-13.13.8.cpanel.x86_64
    ea-apr-util-devel-1.5.2-13.13.8.cpanel.x86_64

    I got this @cPWilliamL
    Code:
    ea-apr-util-1.5.2-13.13.9.cpanel.x86_64
    ea-apr-util-devel-1.5.2-13.13.7.cpanel.x86_64

    Please try removing them and reinstalling it as below:
    Code:
    # rpm -e --justdb --nodeps ea-apr-util-devel-1.5.2-13.13.7.cpanel.x86_64 ea-apr-util-1.5.2-13.13.9.cpanel.x86_64
    # yum install ea-apr-util-devel ea-apr-util
    
    Then try your update once more.
