    /scripts/upcp failing - Freezing part way through

    I've killed off a couple of upcp processes that had become locked, and re-ran /scripts/upcp from SSH.

    It starts and then just stops at:

    "warning: waiting for transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/__db.000"

    Any ideas what would cause this ??

    Thanks in advance,

    Daniel

    Hello,

    For this issue you have to try rebuilding the RPM database, this will fix the issue.

    Thanks,

    I've tried that and it gets further but now freezes at the line:

    "ftpserver started ok"

    I do notice that higher up there is a line that reads:

    Using newyum support.
    Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released
    Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released

    I'm not sure if this is anything to do with it.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks
    Daniel

    Sounds like your YUM configuration is corrupt or missing. Check the contents of /etc/yum.conf and /etc/yum.repos.d. Which version of CentOS/Fedora/RHEL are you using?
