yum clean all
/QOpenSys/pkgs/bin/rpm --rebuilddb
hash -r

I am working with a client who just updated to V7R4.

After figuring out why I couldn't connect to SSHD (they disabled QSSHD user
profile) now when I try to get a list of installed or available packages, I
get the following error:

ERROR: _rpm.error: rpmdb open failed

Any ideas?
