How To Fix “Error: database disk image is malformed” On CentOS / Fedora
Today I have been trying to update my CentOS 6.5 virtual machine using command “yum update”.
# yum update
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, security Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: centos.aol.in * epel: epel.mirror.net.in * extras: centos.aol.in * remi: mirror.smartmedia.net.id * remi-php55: mirror.smartmedia.net.id * rpmforge: mirrors.ispros.com.bd * rpmfusion-free-updates: mirror.smartmedia.net.id * rpmfusion-nonfree-updates: mirror.smartmedia.net.id * updates: centos.aol.in Error: database disk image is malformed
I got a weird error “Error: database disk image is malformed” and my system didn’t get updated.
How do I solve this error?
It was very simple. After a couple of hours hunting for a solution, I got a working solution from Fedora Forums.
To get rid of this above error, enter the following command From Terminal:
# yum clean dbcache
