Corrupt rpmdb

    Hey there! The RPM database isn't something that is controlled by cPanel, so if the normal processes don't work well you may need to reach out to your host to have them check the operating system. I would try running /scripts/find_and_fix_rpm_issues to see if that helps resolve the issue. This is equivalent to the "Rebuild RPM Database" option in the WHM interface. If that doesn't resolve the issue, you'll need to troubleshoot the OS itself.

    Does it happen nightly with the cPanel updates? You can try checking /var/log/yum[.log] to see if perhaps its a specific package causing the problem.

    That was my initial though that something was happening around the nightly updates. I have rebooted the server and I will check again tomorrow. Thank you for your help. :)

    I'm really stumped regarding this, this keeps happening. I dont have automatic updates enabled so Im not sure what could be doing this. :D

    Were you able to determine if it happened as part of the nightly updates on the system?

    Hi cPRex. Before this started to happen I upgraded the kernel via yum update. Everything went fine but few days later this rpmdb thing started to occur. Recently there was another kernel update and after that rpmdb is perfectly fine so I am thinking that some update, whether it was the kernel or another dependent package that was upgraded caused this problem. Thanks again for replying. :)
