Description Przemek Klosowski 2017-01-19 02:32:05 UTC
Created attachment 1242324 [details]
Error message from update listing the file conflicts

Description of problem:
upgrade of kernel debuginfo blocks the update, because of file conflicts between the newest package and the previous one (see attachment).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 kernel    x86_64     4.9.3-200.fc25  

How reproducible: every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. dnf update (with debuginfo-install autoupdate turned on)

Actual results: update blocked due to file conflicts in kernel-debuginfo

Expected results: no conflicts

I am logging this against the kernel package instead of kernel-debuginfo because I couldn't get bugzilla to accept the latter. Please feel free to reassign.

Comment 1 Przemek Klosowski 2017-01-19 02:35:16 UTC
As usual with this type of packaging error, deleting the old package 
allows the update to proceed.

Comment 3 Przemek Klosowski 2017-01-27 00:29:19 UTC
Another conflict between 4.9.3 and 4.9.5 in the preceding attachment, again resolved by manually removing the older kernel-debuginfo-4.9.3 and updating, which magically reinstalls kernel-debuginfo-4.9.5

*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************

We apologize for the inconvenience.  There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale.  Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 25 kernel bugs.

Fedora 25 has now been rebased to 4.10.9-200.fc25.  Please test this kernel update (or newer) and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.

If you have moved on to Fedora 26, and are still experiencing this issue, please change the version to Fedora 26.

If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
