CentOS Samba wont install

user2782999 asked:

I’m having trouble installing samba on my CentOS 6.5 server. I run:

yum install samba

it finds the packages but then the following error messages appears and I cant continue:

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

It’s been a very long time since i used Linux so I dont really know what to do about this, I have tried the commands suggested by the error message but it does not work.
I’m experiencing the same problem when installing MySQL

My answer:

You’ve somehow gotten out of sync with the upstream distribution. To resolve this problem:

  1. Clear the yum caches.

    yum clean all
  2. Resync all your installed software with the latest available versions.

    yum distro-sync

    (Don’t bother with yum update here; it isn’t likely to help since it probably won’t do anything anyway.)

Now try your installation again.
