An updated yum package that fixes various bugs is now available.
Yum is a utility that can check for and automatically download and install updated RPM packages. Dependencies are obtained and downloaded automatically, prompting the user for permission as necessary.
Previously, yum treated packages that provide kernel-modules as install-only packages. With this update, the install-only option has been removed.
Previously, the "/var/cache/yum/" directory kept accumulating multiple '.sqlite' files and never cleaned them out. With this update, the '.sqlite' are automatically cleaned up.
All users of yum are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
