(not much help in the log)

There does not appear to be anything wrong with the rpms themselves. I see this on multiple systems, too.

As a result of multiple attempts, I am left with:

12-23-14  14:10           3,072    124   ___A_  urpo.dll
 1-01-15  22:19           3,207    124   ___A_  urpo.dll;54a60e33
 1-01-15  22:20           3,207    124   ___A_  urpo.dll;54a60e70
 1-01-15  22:21           3,207    124   ___A_  urpo.dll;54a60ed4
 1-01-15  22:40           3,207    124   ___A_  urpo.dll;54a61346

though I do seem to have ended up with the correct rpm.dll, somehow:

 1-01-15  22:42         268,875    124   ___A_  rpm.dll
 1-01-15  22:19         268,875    124   ___A_  rpm.dll;54a60e33
 1-01-15  22:20         268,875    124   ___A_  rpm.dll;54a60e70
 1-01-15  22:21         268,875    124   ___A_  rpm.dll;54a60ed4

Manually replacing the old urpo.dll with the new one resolved the issue. So, we just need to figure out how to get that to happen during a yum or rpm transaction.

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

This happens because urpo-20141223 broke unlocking of dlls and thus it has been retired a few days after the release.

yum downgrade urpo

should be able to restore the old one, but depends on lock status of the dll.

No other ways to fix it automatically.

Understood, Yuri; thanks. Makes perfect sense, now. I should have thought of downgrading first.
