PowerChute Business Edition unsuccessfully installing on Linux after multiple installations on the server

Issue: 

After multiple installations of PowerChute Business Edition on the same Linux server, a rpmdb PANIC can occur, resulting in the following error message, “rpmdb: PANIC: fatal region error detected; run recovery”.
