openmpi and lam
A bug in previous versions of openmpi and lam may prevent you from
upgrading these packages. This same bug may cause yum to fail when
upgrading all packages.
This bug manifests in the following error when attempting to upgrade openmpi or lam:
error: %preun(openmpi-[version]) scriptlet failed, exit status 2
Recommendation : You need to manually remove older versions of openmpi and lam first in order to avoid these errors. To do so, use the following rpm command:
rpm -qa | grep '^openmpi-\|^lam-' | xargs rpm -e --noscripts --allmatches
