cPanel how to force reinstall rpms and fix packages and other problems caused by updates or duplicate rpms

If a service is not working and resetting it to defaults is not working and you get bizarre error messages it is probably a broken update and possibly duplicate package.

Take in this case "exim" not working even after resetting to defaults.

Check for duplicates:

rpm -aq|grep exim

exim-4.82-5.cp1136 exim-4.82-4.cp1136

Remove the duplicates
rpm -e --nodeps --justdb exim-4.82-5.cp1136
rpm -e --nodeps --justdb exim-4.82-4.cp1136

Force cPanel to reinstall exim (it will find exim is now missing and reinstall it):
/scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix
Autofixer/duplicate remover (not recommended unless all else fails)
/scripts/autorepair fix_duplicate_cpanel_rpms
