my server is CentOS. Linux release 7.4.1708
kernel: 3.10.0-693.el7.x86_64

It is not possible to use yum package manager. Every command (install, remove, search etc.) will produce the error message:

bash: /usr/bin/yum: /usr/bin/python3.7: bad interpreter: No such file or directory.  

Under /usr/bin there is only:

python, python-config, python2, python2-config, python2.7, python2.7-config  

Output of which python is:

/usr/bin/python 

Output of ll /usr/bin/python:

/usr/bin/python -> python2.7

It is possible to enter the python shell mode using ‘python2.7’ command.
I understand that python2.6 should be used and not python 2.7 from this link:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/36220813/bash-usr-bin-yum-usr-bin-python-bad-interpreter-no-such-file-or-directory?rq=1
How do I reinstall python2.6?
Using rpm -qa |grep python will list all python packages . How do I review which python package is OK to remove and which is not?

  • It seems like you are missing Python 3 instead of Python 2, no? According to the yum error.
