Topic: Errors during update to php-mbstring-7.4.7

When running updates to our PHP packages, I'm receiving the following errors:

# dnf update
Last metadata expiration check: 0:35:08 ago on Thu 18 Jun 2020 09:45:20 AM CDT.
Error:

Here's the repolist output, if it helps....

Running on CentOS Linux release 8.1.1911 (Core).

I'm looking for recommendations as to how best to handle this, as I'm fairly new to this aspect of Linux.

Thanks!

Re: Errors during update to php-mbstring-7.4.7

Thanks for checking on this for me.

We'll do some further research on our end, and will post an update with what we find to fix the issue.

Re: Errors during update to php-mbstring-7.4.7

Also notice that there is >11000 download of this package on EL-8 (partial numbers from some mirrors), so seems to be ok for most users...

Re: Errors during update to php-mbstring-7.4.7

I get something pretty similar:

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Re: Errors during update to php-mbstring-7.4.7

BSDUKJ your problem is different.

You have not enabled "remi-php74" repository, so don't receive PHP updates

Latest php 7.4.7 uses oniguruma5php which obsoletes oniguruma5 used by previous PHP versions.

Reminder: always follow the Wizard instructions for a proper configuration.

Re: Errors during update to php-mbstring-7.4.7

Thanks Remi,

Not only was "remi-php74" repo not enabled but neither was "remi-release" therefore "php-fedora-autoloader-1.0.1-2.el7.noarch.rpm" wouldn't install either.

Sorted now, thanks very much.
