Somewhere in the process of doing a yum update from a terminal window

perhaps when ssh restarted or when freenx was updated. The yum update

reconnected. Is that supposed to happen? (Centos 5.x)
Yes, it does happen. For more details, please see (warning, very long thread):


If you now have a broken rpm database because of the interrupted yum
session, the thread has a remedy for that.
OK, that long thread caused a headache for someone (can't tell you
who), so I'm going to give you a shortcut.

Run the command:

rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME} %{ARCH}\n" | sort | uniq -c | awk '$1 != 1 {
print $2 }' | sort

If the output shows anything other than gpg-pubkey or kernel*, then
your rpm database is most likely broken. Go to #45 of that thread.
The OP nicely summarized the procedure to fix it.
