This looks like an issue in yum for me. IPA packages on fedora are named freeipa-server, freeipa-client etc... while in RHEL they are named ipa-server, ipa-client etc...

ipa.spec defines on purpose conflicts with freeipa-* packages from fedora:

%global alt_name freeipa

Provides: %{alt_name}-server = %{version}
Conflicts: %{alt_name}-server
Obsoletes: %{alt_name}-server < %{version}

It looks like yum is not able to handle this situation, hence moving this issue to yum component.

Comment 3 Karel Srot 2018-11-12 08:41:08 UTC
Looks that this is the problem

# rpm -q --provides ipa-client-common
config(ipa-client-common) = 4.6.4-10.el7
freeipa-client-common = 4.6.4
ipa-client-common = 4.6.4-10.el7
# rpm -q --conflicts ipa-client-common

on reinstall the package conflicts with its own provides. yum should not be considering such conflicts valid.

Comment 4 Michal Domonkos 2018-11-22 14:28:11 UTC
Which yum version is this?  The issue has been fixed in yum-3.4.3-154.el7 shipped with RHEL-7.4.  Could you please update yum to that version and try again?

Comment 6 Michal Domonkos 2018-11-26 09:48:51 UTC
OK, I can reproduce this.  Turns out the previous fix (bug 1370134) only covers some code paths (such as "yum check") but not this one.  We'll consider this for 7.7.

Comment 9 Panu Matilainen 2019-03-25 10:38:03 UTC
That'd be an rpm bug. There's an unhandled corner-case with self-conflicts on (re)installation of already installed packages and that affects upstream rpm too. I've a preliminary fix for this, and what I have now is not an intrusive patch so it could be considered for rhel-7:
 3 files changed, 21 insertions(+), 5 deletions(-)

Now I'll just need to mull over it a bit to understand whether this fix is actually the right thing to do, there are a few different approaches possible and it's all a bit subtle.
