- Error: Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root
- cause is something else and multilib version checking is just
- pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:
- 1. You have an upgrade for freetype which is missing some
- dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to
- solve this by installing an older version of freetype of the
- different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture
- yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package
- requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with
- --exclude freetype.otherarch ... this should give you an error
- message showing the root cause of the problem.
- 2. You have multiple architectures of freetype installed, but
- yum can only see an upgrade for one of those architectures.
- If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you
- can remove the one with the missing update and everything
- will work.
- 3. You have duplicate versions of freetype installed already.
- You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.
- ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove
- this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to
- do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing
- much more problems).
- Protected multilib versions: freetype-2.5.0-5.fc20.i686 != freetype-2.5.0-4.fc20.x86_64
