    You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
    You could try running: package-cleanup –problems
    package-cleanup –dupes
    rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest
    The program package-cleanup is found in the yum-utils package

    Hi Sivagamasundari,

    It looks like your repository is not setup correctly for RHEL. You need to be able to pull the postgres install from there.
    If you run a yum install postgresql-server then I would expect it will fail.

    Thanks

    Dave
