    See this

    Code:
    [root@serv1 ~]# yum update
    There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
    required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
    
       librpm-4.4.so: cannot open shared object file: Too many open files in system
    
    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:
    2.4.3 (#1, Sep 21 2011, 19:55:41)
    [GCC 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-51)]
    
    If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
    the yum faq at:
      http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq
    
    
    [root@serv1 ~]#
    I have no clue what to do. I tried everything I can.

    Help me.

    Hello,

    This is the applicable error:

    Are you using a dedicated or a VPS server? If it's a VPS, is it Virtuozzo or OpenVZ based? You are hitting a system limit and that limit needs to be increased. Knowing what particularly would be related to what kind of system you are using.

    Thanks!
