So apparently my eyes are horrible and I've been missing this error from upcp for a while...

Code:
...
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
30:caching-nameserver-9.3.6-20.P1.el5_8.6.x86_64 from updates has depsolving problems
  --> Missing Dependency: bind = 30:9.3.6-20.P1.el5_8.6 is needed by package 30:caching-nameserver-9.3.6-20.P1.el5_8.6.x86_64 (updates)
Error: Missing Dependency: bind = 30:9.3.6-20.P1.el5_8.6 is needed by package 30:caching-nameserver-9.3.6-20.P1.el5_8.6.x86_64 (updates)
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
...
I tried the suggested commands (after installing yum-utils) but they don't seem to help. Presumably there's a way to specifically install the version of bind needed.

rpm -q tells me I currently have bind-9.3.6-16.P1.el5_7.1 but when I say "yum update bind" I get the same error as above.

Re: problem depsolving bind

I see that a similar problem was reported last spring:

http://forums.cpanel.net/f34/yum-failed-6-times-cannot-continue-270041.html

But I suspect the suggested solution (remove bind, reinstall) is far from ideal for an already up and running system.

Perhaps I should remove the caching-nameserver, do a yum update, and reinstall caching-nameserver?

That's just a SWAG so if anyone has a better idea please let me know.

Thanks.

This topic has gotten a fair amount of views so maybe I'm asking silly questions or perhaps no one else is seeing this:
