The following error message appears in

When updating the packages manually with the command
yum update, the process fails due to package duplicates with the following error messages:
CONFIG_TEXT: Error: Package: 1:<package_name1>-1.0.6-31.el7_2.x86_64 (@updates)

You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
** Found 47 pre-existing rpmdb problem(s), 'yum check' output follows:

<package_name2>-5.6.33-centos7.18010913.x86_64 is a duplicate with <package_name2>-5.6.27-centos7.16101710.x86_64
Duplicated packages in the RPM database.
Warning: It is strongly recommended to create a snapshot/backup of the server before applying the steps below.
Connect to the Plesk server via SSH.
Install the "yum-utils" package:
# yum install yum-utils
Find all duplicated packages with the command:
# package-cleanup --dupes
Remove duplicates using either of the following methods:
cleanup packages database:
# package-cleanup --cleandupes
remove exact duplicate package manually (make sure that you are removing older version of package), for example:
# rpm -e policycoreutils-2.0.83-19.47.el6_6.1.x86_64 --nodeps
Rerun system updates:
# plesk sbin pum --update
