So, for anyone who is using OpenVZ7 on Centos7 (unofficially like me and i know there are many others) .. latest release 7.0.14 broke everything since factory.repo is enabled by deafult so if you just do yum update it will update it to 7.0.14 and then when you type yum update again it will have more updates (this time from factory repo)

Continuing at this point will break your system in a way that it boots and works for 5 minutes and then VPS stops and nothing.

If anyone gets to this point - just disable factory.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d/factory.repo (enabled=0)

and type

yum history undo $NUMBER (last update with which you broke it)

Then it will be fine again using 7.0.14 without factory repo

Hope this helps someone
