Ok, so not sure the "how come, or why" but I got this..

No module named yum

Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.


It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
2.7.5 (default, Apr 2 2020, 13:16:51)
[GCC 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-39)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:

http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq

The "fix" I got to work was to find and go to the executable folder for YUM (was there)
from command line:

/]# cd /usr/bin
/]# yum (confirmed it was there and working)
/]# yum install yum-utils (it repaired what ever was broken)

Hey there! While not an issue with cPanel tools, everything on the internet points to a Python problem on the machine, such as this official guide from RedHat:


You may want to check the server's bash history for anything related to Python, or the /var/log/yum.log file on the machine to see if there were any recent change to Python packages on the system that may have contributed to this.
