While doing an update of some SAS packages on redhat 7, it failed and i restore the directory where it was supposed to be installed (/opt/sas).
However i had no backup of /var/lib/ and hence I now have newer package versions listed in rpm databases than those actually installed.
One key issue now, is that i cannot replay the update since packages are already up-to-date from rpm database point of view.
I do have a listing of all the packages version that were supposed to be updated prior to the update.
Can I somehow reflect the current situation in rpm databases?
