    I have a clean centminmod install, I've merely been updating nginx, php to 7.4.12 recently as well as pip 2 days ago and ffmpeg. Was about to migrate my XF site and upon doing a recommended yum update I get the below:

    Code:
    yum update --disableplugin=priorities --setopt=deltarpm=0 --enablerepo=remi
    ....
    .....
    ....
    Error: Package: glibc-2.17-307.el7.1.i686 (@base)
               Requires: glibc-common = 2.17-307.el7.1
               Removing: glibc-common-2.17-307.el7.1.x86_64 (@anaconda)
                   glibc-common = 2.17-307.el7.1
               Updated By: glibc-common-2.17-317.el7.x86_64 (base)
                   glibc-common = 2.17-317.el7
     You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
     You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
    I've tried
    yum reinstall glibc-2.17-307.el7.1.x86_64 glibc-common-2.17-307.el7.1.x86_64
    yum update

    as well as yum clean all and update to no avail.

    Not sure what has a dependency on the i686 binary

    Who is your web host and what plan are you on? This comes down to the initial CentOS OS image configured/provided by your web host provider.

    You can use below yum history command to check when the yum package was updated/installed etc
    Code (Text):
    yum --setopt=history_list_view=cmds history list glibc
    

    or more specifically
    Code (Text):
    yum --setopt=history_list_view=cmds history list glibc-2.17-307.el7.1.i686
    

    then you can use the output's transaction IDs to inspect each yum transaction where XX is transaction ID
    Code (Text):
    yum history info XX
    


    The CentOS OS has mixed i686 and x86_64 packages installed which you need to remove the i686 ones via command
    Code (Text):
    yum remove \*.i686

    This is my own server running proxmox. I think I used cent 7 iso a month ago to install it then kernel update and next I installed centminmod 129 right after. Nothing else is on this VM.

    Been working ok until today's update.


    Code:
    yum --setopt=history_list_view=cmds history list glibc
    
    ID     | Command line             | Date and time    | Action(s)      | Altered
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        63 | -y -q install --disablee | 2020-11-10 03:26 | Install        |    2
         1 |                          | 2020-10-02 02:04 | Install        |  300
    history list
    

    Code (Text):
    yum history list info 63
        63 | root <root>              | 2020-11-10 03:26 | Install        |    2
         1 | System <unset>           | 2020-10-02 02:04 | Install        |  300
    


    Looks like the pip/python update I did (as per recommendation from centmin) may have had something to do with this checking on the dates.

    OK removed offending glibc 686 package and all is well again. Thought you should know in case someone else comes with this issue.

    Thank you for the swift reply @eva2000

    yum command for that specific command only exists in addons/avginstall.sh which is quite old and hasn't been updated in ages according to sourcegraph search of 123.09beta01 branch (github.com can only search master branch so while sourcegraph allows 123.09beta01 search) according to sourcegraph link here.

    upload_2020-11-14_2-7-52.png

    IIRC addons/avginstall.sh was only 32bit supported so needed glibc 32bit

    pretty sure AVG would fail to install as download page no longer lists the actual download URL and needs registration at AVG Free Antivirus Download | Virus Protection Software and Linux version isn't available anymore.

    So probably need to remove addons/avginstall.sh

    edit: I just updated addons/avginstall.sh to remove it's routines and just leave a message for users that it is no longer supported.

    You are correct I did attempt to install it and failed. Glad you got it sorted out. What's the approved antivirus solution for centmin? Clamav?
