Fatal error YUM: Thread died in Berkeley DB library

I got an error while upgrading my CentOS server

# yum update
rpmdb: Thread/process 29212/3077682880 failed: Thread died in Berkeley DB library
error: db3 error(-30974) from dbenv->failchk: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery
error: cannot open Packages index using db3 -  (-30974)
error: cannot open Packages database in /var/lib/rpm
CRITICAL:yum.main:

Error: rpmdb open failed

Step 1: Delete Databases

Remove database files from location /var/lib/rpm/

# rm /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rm: remove regular file `/var/lib/rpm/__db.001'? y
rm: remove regular file `/var/lib/rpm/__db.002'? y
rm: remove regular file `/var/lib/rpm/__db.003'? y
rm: remove regular file `/var/lib/rpm/__db.004'? y

Step 2: Run updates

Now execute the yum update command.

# yum update
