others-how to solve the syntax error when doing yum update?

1. Purpose

In this post, I will show you how to solve the syntax error when doing yum update.

Because upgrading python3 deleted the original python2, I am trying to update the yum repo:

[root@localhost Python-3.11.5]# yum update
  File "/usr/bin/yum", line 30
    except KeyboardInterrupt, e:
SyntaxError: multiple exception types must be parenthesized

Current python version:

[root@localhost Python-3.11.5]# python --version
Python 3.11.5

2. Solution

Here is the solution, you can just remove the python2 using rpm:

rpm -ivh python2.rpm
