I'm unable to reproduce this. I bet this is some multilib/yum issue.

When I tried to reproduce it, I had to install mysql to satisfy dovecot dep.
Mysql depended on a newer version of ncurses, but yum decided to update only on
x86_64. This resulted in a conflict. I have no idea how this may happen with
dovecot though, it should not be multilib at all.

Please check what architecture is your currently installed dovecot and try to
rpm -Uvh the new one manully.

OK so after trying:
rpm -Uvh /var/cache/yum/development/packages/dovecot-1.0-7.rc27.fc7.x86_64.rpm
error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/__db.000

i did a:
]$ rpm -qa | grep dovecot

Tried to remove it and get:
 rpm -e dovecot-1.0-3.rc22.fc7
error: "dovecot-1.0-3.rc22.fc7" specifies multiple packages

Comment 5 Tomas Janousek 2007-03-22 13:26:06 UTC
Seems like you have both i386 and x86_64 version of the package installed. I
suppose you must have installed these with --nodeps or something, because these
two collide in at least the /usr/sbin/dovecot binary. This package is not a
multilib one, so this is a conflicting setup even before doing any update at all.

Comment 6 Skip Palin 2007-03-23 21:46:47 UTC
I screed up, when I did a update I used:
yum -y --skip-broken update

Sorry to waste your time.
