Lately, I seem to be unable to install any new packages. I keep getting the error "The name org.freedesktop.PackageKit was not provided by any .service files", and I haven't a clue what that means. I've searched for it but didn't find any useful information. I fear I might have accidentally deleted a file I shouldn't have.

Any help would be appreciated.

Found a workaround:
  • Open a terminal
  • cd to the directory you downloaded the .rpm to
  • yum install name-of-the.rpm
As an example, I downloaded the latest VirtualBox update to my Downloads folder. The name of the file is VirtualBox-4.1-4.1.8_75467_rhel6-1.x86_64.rpm. To install it, I opened up a terminal window and entered
CODE
$cd Downloads/
to get to my Downloads folder. Next, I entered
CODE
$su
#yum install VirtualBox-4.1-4.1.8_75467_rhel6-1.x86_64.rpm
to install the .rpm.

I was having the same problem a few minutes ago. Then, after typing that error message into a search engine, I found your post. I don't know how to reverse-CD in linux, so I just cut and pasted the repos from "downloads" to "documents" and now they work fine smile.gif Thanks!
