[LON-CAPA-admin] yum update of centos 6

The libipa_hbac RPM is not installed on any CentOS LON-CAPA instances  
I manage, so you must have a package installed that is not expected,  
based on a minimal CentOS 6 install followed by installation of the  
LONCAPA-prerequisites rpm.

It appears that libipa_hbac is a dependency of sssd, so my guess is  
that you have sssd installed.

Anyway, looking at: http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/6.8/updates/ I see


which suggests that libipa_hbac-python was renamed python-libipa_hbac  
between CentOS 6.7 and 6.8.

If I do:

yum install libipa_hbac-python

on CentOS 6.8 I find that python-libipa_hbac is actually installed.

So one thing to try would be:

yum remove libipa_hbac-python
yum clean all
yum update

followed by

yum install python-libipa_hbac
