[Test-Announce] RPM database issues in the last day or two

Hi folks!

If you ran into problems like RPM or dnf or related apps reporting
database errors or unexpected crashes in the last few days, it is
almost certainly due to a broken libdb update that was sent to updates-
testing briefly. libdb-5.3.28-18 and libdb-5.3.28-19 are both subject
to the bug. If you got either of those builds while they were in
updates-testing for F24, F25 or F26, please do downgrade back to libdb-
5.3.28-17 . To resolve the database issues you can do the old RPM
database dance:

rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__db*
rpm --rebuilddb

If you still have issues and can't fix them, please do post to test@ or
ask on #fedora-qa or in one of the relevant bug reports:

we do apologize for the inconvenience.
