E Sysup: Needed system RPMs were not installed: yum-utils

When encountering the following:

E Sysup: Needed system RPMs were not installed: yum-utils
***** FATAL: Cannot proceed. Needed system RPMs were not installed. Run the following:


yum install yum-utils

If that does not work, which is common on CentOS 5 systems run the following:



cd /usr/local/src 
wget ftp://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/centos/5.11/os/x86_64/CentOS/yum-utils-1.1.16-21.el5.centos.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh yum-utils-1.1.16-21.el5.centos.noarch.rpm
