Try the suggestions in the output from YUM; for example:
Code:
yum upgrade --skip-broken
I was weary of running this for fear of breaking things. I ran the upgrade and it worked, but now I can't restart the SSH Daemon via the WHM. SSH is still running, but I don't want to try restarting it via shell in case it breaks my SSH access altogether.

Code:
Restarting SSH Daemon

Waiting for sshd to restart....finished.

sshd (/usr/sbin/sshd) running as root with PID 8498 (pidfile check method)

sshd: [ != SSH]
sshd has failed, please contact the sysadmin.
Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Hello :)

I moved this post into it's own thread for you. Do you have SSH running on a non-standard port? Do you have console access in the event SSH fails when restarting it via the command line?

Thank you.

Thank you for your help. SSH is running on port 22. I do not have console access.

Do you see that SSH is running from the command line? If so, restarting it via the command line should not perform a different action compared to when you restart it via Web Host Manager.

Thank you.

It's likely SSHd did not restart fast enough for Web Host Manager to detect it as running. Thus, the SSH service restarted successfully, but WHM listed it as "Failed" because it did not restart fast enough.

Thank you.
