RE: up2date 'breaks' RPM dependency database?

Thanks, that did fix my immediate problem.  But, I still have the same issue
that the Red Hat Package Manager was broken by up2date, in that Red Hat
Package Manager can no longer install major package groups.

What's the real fix for this?  Is this a bug?

up2date gcc

That'll download and install the latest version of gcc available and any
dependencies it might need.
