Description Christian Stadelmann 2017-07-23 15:20:14 EDT
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
installed: python3-docs-3.6.1-1.fc26.noarch, python3-3.6.1-8.fc26.x86_64
trying to update to: python3-3.6.2-1.fc26

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have python3-docs 3.6.1-1.fc26 and python3-3.6.1-8.fc26 installed
2. try to update python3 to python3-3.6.2-1.fc26

Actual results:
dnf does not update python3, it tells me that there are broken dependencies. When trying the suggested solution, adding `--best --allowerasing` to dnf command line, dnf tries to remove python3-docs.

Expected results:
Update just fine

Additional info:
It looks like either python3-docs must be updated whenever python3 changes its micro version, or the version dependency in https://src.fedoraproject.org/cgit/rpms/python3-docs.git/tree/python3-docs.spec?h=f26#n29 should be more relaxed.

Built the latest versions and it's currently on its way to updates-testing.

Will keep the bugzilla open to track the version dependency issue.

I worked around the repo problem by installing the RPM from Koji.

Does the rebuild fix what is in the repo?

How did all of the python 3.6.2 RPMs except python3-docs make into the
repo?

Here is the Koji page for anyone needing the work around.

Works fine, thanks!

It should be as simple as setting the version dependency from "=" to ">=". Python-docs does not hard depend on anything except a browser, as far as I know. Maybe it provides some tools which expect a specific version, but as python has pretty good backwards compatibility, especially on micro versions, having a higher python3 version than python3-docs is, it should be fine.

You should now be able to update your computer using dnf or Packagekit or whatever frontend you are using.

The rebuild does not fix anything, as cstratak wrote above. Since the rebuild does provide python3-docs in version 3.6.2, dnf/rpm will no longer complain about missing dependencies and will update python3.

python3-docs is a separate source package, so it can (and will!) be built at different times than python3.
