1.253.1.  RHBA-2009:0440: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:0440
An updated yum-metadata-parser package that fixes a bug is now available.
yum-metadata-parser is a fast metadata parser for yum implemented in C.
This updated yum-metadata-parser package fixes the following bug:
  • in certain circumstances, yum-metadata-parser corrupted yum's sqlite database, which could have led to problems such as dependency resolution failures when attempting to upgrade packages. With this update, yum regenerates the sqlite database file following each repository metadata download, which solves possible database corruption issues.
All users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues by always generating the .sqlite files from scratch.
