Instead of breaking the build and stopping the CodeBuild job, the flag --skip-broken will skip packages with broken dependencies. This can occur when a package suddenly introduces a new dependency that cannot be resolved by the system, causing the CodeBuild job to suddenly fail.


Example of a broken build, due to a new version of NodeJS introducing a dependency to a libuv version that cannot be resolved. Instead of stopping the build, the flag --skip-broken will skip upgrading NodeJS and ensure prowler can still run with the older version of NodeJS.

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: 1:nodejs-16.13.2-3.el7.x86_64 (epel)
           Requires: libuv >= 1:1.42.0
           Installed: 1:libuv-1.39.0-1.amzn2.x86_64 (@amzn2-core)
               libuv = 1:1.39.0-1.amzn2
           Available: 1:libuv-1.23.2-1.amzn2.0.2.i686 (amzn2-core)
               libuv = 1:1.23.2-1.amzn2.0.2
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
