Errors from yum update


I have mono installed and working well on a CentOS 6 boot. This was installed using the instructions at http://www.mono-project.com/download/#download-lin-centos.

Today, I've tried upgrading through yum, to mono

Unfortunately, there are a lot of dependency errors.

I attach the list of all the errors.

Some of these have weird version requirements, e.g.

Error: Package: msbuild-15.3+xamarinxplat.2017. (download.mono-project.com_repo_centos6_)
           Requires: mono(System) =

That does not look right.

Any suggestions for how to fix?

Improved, but not yet fixed.

A new 'yum update' now comes down to this one error:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: msbuild-15.3+xamarinxplat.2017. (download.mono-project.com_repo_centos6_)
           Requires: msbuild-libhostfxr

Argh. Forgot to promote that repo from beta ages ago.
