Problem installing percona-toolkit on CentOS7 after already having Percona 8.0

Hello. I have a CentOS 7 machine running Percona 8.0 (MySQL). I’m trying to install the Percona Toolkit, but I encounter the following dependency mismatch when running sudo yum install percona-toolkit:

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I would appreciate if you could help me with this. Thank you!

Hi @Andrei2345
Thanks for your report.
Please try to use yum clean all and install percona-toolkit.
The issue should be fixed now


Thank you, now it works!
