RHEL 5.3 and Depsolve problems in Yum

During some recent server patches on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3, I kept getting ‘depsolve’ errors on several packages. This was odd, as I had not made any changes to anything, installed anything new, or removed anything.

Turns out this is a known bug in 5.3, and luckily, the solution is simple:

$> yum clean all

Run that, and it refreshes your local repository. The next time you go to update packages your server will refresh everything with the Red Hat respository, and all will be good!
