    Smile YUM not working


    I was updating yum and the server froze on me for the first time. After the reset when I tried to run any YUM command such as yum update or yum clean all

    I get this:

    [root@localhost ~]# yum update
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/yum", line 4, in ?
    import yum
    File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/__init__.py", line 50, in ?
    import comps
    File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/yum/comps.py", line 23, in ?
    iterparse = cElementTree.iterparse
    AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'iterparse'



    I thought maybe it was python missing a file when I do this:
    [root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i python
    python-iniparse-0.2.3-4.el5
    gnome-python2-gnomeprint-2.16.0-3.el5

    I'm a bit confused hoping someone can help me.

    Using Centos 5.6, let me know if you need any more information.

    Thanks,
    Josh

    If you were updating the yum program then you might have to re-install the yum program either from the repo by dling it manually and installing it or use your install cd to re-install it.
