Error: database disk image is malformed
Yum is a tool available for installing packages on RPM based Linux distributions. I have recently found the following error while trying to install updates on CentOS. “Error: database disk image is malformed”
[root@localhost ~]# yum update Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security Setting up Install Process Determining fastest mirrors * base: ftp.usf.edu * extras: mirror.atlantic.net * updates: mirror.eboundhost.com extras | 3.4 kB 00:00 extras/primary_db | 37 kB 00:00 updates | 3.4 kB 00:00 updates/primary_db | 5.2 MB 00:00 Error: database disk image is malformed [root@localhost ~]#
This error can be easily fixed by running following command.
yum clean dbcache
