Yum not processing update

did a yum update and got the following error

Running Transaction Updating : 32:bind-libs-9.8.2-0.10.rc1.el6_3.5.x86_64 1/34 Updating : webmin-1.600-1.noarch 2/34 ^CError in POSTIN scriptlet in rpm package webmin-1.600-1.noarch error: %post(webmin-1.600-1.noarch) scriptlet failed, signal 2

now I can't access the server at https://ipaddress:10000/

usermin works at https://ipaddress:20000/

yum update shows no more updates needed.

when trying to reinstall webmin via yum error is:

yum reinstall webmin

advise/help please....



Try running /etc/webmin/start to re-start the Webmin process on port 10000.

How simple a fix... sometimes I miss the simple things and overthink it.

It now works.... any problems with future updates? Or any reason this one failed?

It sounds like the Webmin process didn't restart cleanly for some reason.

That hopefully won't be an issue during future updates, though if it ever is, you can always just perform a manual restart of it like you did here.
