Description Eric Biggers 2016-03-01 03:22:08 UTC

dnf install --allowerasing kernel-4.2.3

Expected result:

DNF either installs the package, or clearly indicates why the package cannot be installed.

Actual result:

    Last metadata expiration check performed 2:00:05 ago on Mon Feb 29 19:18:59 2016.
    Error: conflicting requests

This is not an acceptable error message; it contains very little useful information.
