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

Thanks in advance.

My answer:


That web site does not explain how to install Oracle Database. Rather it explains how to install Oracle Linux, a clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. These packages are obviously conflicting with each other.

To resolve the problem, remove the Oracle Linux repository files that you had installed from that site, then run yum distro-sync to repair your RHEL system.
