Full data on run with --debugsolver

With dnf-1.0.0-1.fc22.noarch I tried to install an older kernel from files I manually downloaded, because I need to run a kernel module not available for the latest kernel yet:

beland@localhost ~]$ sudo dnf install ./kernel-4.0.2-300.fc22.x86_64.rpm ./kernel-modules-4.0.2-300.fc22.x86_64.rpm ./kernel-core-4.0.2-300.fc22.x86_64.rpm

Error: conflicting requests.
conflicting requests

The message "conflicting requests" does not provide enough information for me to solve the problem.  What is conflicting with what?

I currently have the following installed:


When I re-ran with --debugsolver, I got the following in solver.result:

just ran into the same issue, increasing /etc/dnf/dnf.conf's installonly_limit fixed it

I just ran into this. Although searching the web led to this bug (and the solution) in a quite straightforward way, a better error message would really, really be helpful!
