My CentOS yum update is not running. Plese check yum error message in the following text.


yum
There was a problem importing one of the Python modules
required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:

   No module named yum

Please install a package which provides this module, or
verify that the module is installed correctly.

It's possible that the above module doesn't match the
current version of Python, which is:
2.7.16 (default, Oct 15 2019, 11:56:22)
[GCC 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-17)]

If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to
the yum faq at:
  http://yum.baseurl.org/wiki/Faq

Update python and pip last version. Current version is:

  • Python 2.7.16 pip 19.3.1 from
  • /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pip (python 2.7)

I see this file from directory /usr/bin/yum

#!/usr/local/bin/python2.7
import sys
try:
    import yum
except ImportError:
    print >> sys.stderr, """\

    sys.exit(1)

And I tested installing pip3 & python3

Pip error during yum installation

pip install yum 

ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement yum (from versions: none)

  • Does /usr/local/bin/python2.7 exist?

You can use scp copy python from other server to the focal python package like ->> After copy library finished. yum command working with my server:

scp -r [email protected]:/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages /usr/lib/python2.7/
