Trying to do this upgrade on a Centos 6.2 node, which requires extra step as per Mapr release notes:

http://doc.mapr.com/display/RelNotes/Version+4.0.2+Release+Notes

e.g.:
-----

CentOS Version 6.3 and Earlier: MapR installations on Version 6.3 and earlier may fail because of an unresolved dependency on the redhat-lsb-core package.

This problem occurs when the CentOS repository points to vault.centos.org, rather than mirror.centos.org. If you encounter this problem, use one of the following workarounds:

    Manually download and install the RPM:

        wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/os/x86_64/Packages/redhat-lsb-core-4.0-7.el6.centos.x86_64.rpm

        yum localinstall redhat-lsb-core-4.0-7.el6.centos.x86_64.rpm

----

However, when I attempt to do this yum complains that the above 4.0.7 rpm conflicts with the 4.0.3 rpm that is currently installed.  Same problem occurs if we try to do a yum -U.

I have the option to upgrade Centos OS from 6.2 to 6.6 FIRST...then do the MAPR upgrade...would that be a cleaner way of doing this? 

In the middle of the upgrade right now, so appreciate quick response.
