I’ve got some problems with my FreePBX Distro. It showed me a bunch of updates, which I tried to install via the update function. Soon the updates got stucked… The system showed a repeating error message like “Another app is currently holding the yum lock; waiting for it to exit… The other application is: yum”. I then googled the error (I’m not good at Linux) and tried to kill the process via the PID. It didn’t work. After having killed all the shown processes, yum didn’t find any updates.
Today I have rebooted my system (VMware ESXi 6.5) and i ran into a kernel panic. I think, the unfinished updates have broken something essential. I finally could boot my system by selecting an other kernel on startup. It is now running again, but yum still doesn’t find any updates!
Can you please help me to get that resolved? There now is a broken kernel and there are no updates available. “yum update” always tells me, there are no updates…
Thank you very much in advance!
