Try doing 'yum clean all' then try again.

Check your /etc/yum.conf file for any repositories that might be disabled. Also check that you don't have any 'excluded' package on it. Another important thing is running yum as the root user, that's the only one capable of installing/upgrading packages.

Probably just

# yum clean metadata

would be enough to fix it rather than deleting all cached files/packages too.

What command, exactly, produced your error message, by the way?

I can see the packages when I do yum search, so it is available. This is the exact command I'm giving:

yum  update  package_name

package name  I got when I do yum search.

Yes, older package is already there. I'm trying to upgrade it to latest version and when I do yum search I can see the latest version.

if it is same MQSeries that IBM makes then you need to back up configuration, uninstall and install anew.

I don't find "package_name" in any RPM repos for any distribution, so I would say that is the root cause of the problem.

please run "script" command and after do yum search and yum update and rpm -qa | grep ^MQ
and attach the result.
