  • Issues with yum dependencies

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to install Centreon on a CentOS 7 VM (with VMWare). I followed these steps, however i have issues with the install at this point : yum install centreon-base-config-centreon-engine centreon, which gives me the following error message :

    Erreur : Paquet : centreon-plugins-2.8.22-1.el7.centos.noarch (centreon-stable-noarch)
    Requiert : perl(utils)

    Vous pouvez essayer d'utiliser --skip-broken pour contourner le problème
    Vous pouvez essayer d'exécuter : rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

    However, nagios-plugin seems to be installed :

    [root@localhost ~]# yum install nagios-plugins
    Modules complémentaires chargés : fastestmirror, langpacks
    Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
    * base:
    * epel:
    * extras:
    * updates:
    Le paquet nagios-plugins-2.2.1-9git5c7eb5b9.el7.x86_64 est déjà installé dans sa dernière version
    Rien à faire

    I didn't find anything about this on Google and i'm new to monitoring so i don't really know where to start. Do you have any clues about this ?

    This is a conflict between the centreon-plugin package specifying that it requires "perl(utils)" and the latest release of nagios-plugins-perl (2.2.1-9) which no longer publishes that it provides "perl(utils)".

    This can be resolved with the following:

    yum install yum-utils
    rpm -Uvh --nodeps $(repoquery --location nagios-plugins-perl)
    yum update
    The above will update the nagios-plugins-perl package while ignoring dependencies. Then the update of the Centreon packages will succeed. Rest assured this is not normally required.

      I have the same issue but the above solution did not work for me. I'm still getting the following error:

      Error: Package: centreon-plugins-2.8.22-1.el7.centos.noarch (centreon-stable-noarch)
                 Requires: perl(utils)
                 Available: nagios-plugins-perl-1.4.16-10.el7.centos.x86_64 (centreon-stable)
                 Installed: nagios-plugins-perl-2.2.1-9git5c7eb5b9.el7.x86_64 (installed)
                     Not found
       You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
      ** Found 2 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:
      centreon-plugins-2.8.20-10.el7.centos.noarch has missing requires of perl(utils)

        I had a similar error, your post helped me. I had to modify the command though:

        rpm -Uvh --nodeps $(repoquery --location centreon-plugins)
        Thanks for the help,
