Oh my. I know what this is. It is https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/packaging-guidelines/Directory_Replacement/
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 32 development cycle.
Changing version to 32.
Hello RPM maintainers,
Could you look at the list thread, and see if you can help explain what's happening? https://firstname.lastname@example.org/thread/YWJWLXKLF6DGT7LITBC766QW7RY7OOPM/
Please, help us get this fixed. Is this a bug in RPM?
I don't see js-moment in the repos for FC33. Has It been dropped? Am I missing something?
It's not on my system either.
Yes, retired. You can grab it form Koji to simulate the problem.
Install js-moment from https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=1193942
Install python3-notebook <= 6.0.2-1
Try to upgrade to https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/python-notebook/pull-request/17
The catch here is that the offending js-moment package isn't being removed in the transaction, so in my view rpm has a fair reason to complain: it's one thing to allow replacing content from a package that's being removed, and quite something else when it's not. Obsolete js-moment and the pretrans scriptlet will start working.
Oh well. Will test. Thanks.
Oh and BTW, I'm the first to agree there's an unhealthy amount of magic involved in all this.
The fact that yum/dnf does an extra test transaction is what makes things so complicated: the conflict needs to be eliminated before the transaction can proceed, but obviously a test-transaction cannot run the script which would do so. So there's a funky heuristic that lets the conflict be ignored on test-transactions when the moon is full and the stars are aligned just so to let this case through.
> Will test.
It gets the job done. Thanks.
I have been having system problems and just got back online last night. Apparently my post was lost in the explosion. Sigh.
I got all the pkgs that I think that I need to test this.

I couldn't find a FC32 directory in archives.fedoraproject.org so I couldn't find the rpm for python3-notebook referenced above. Do you know where I can find that? I have found a Live system at FC32. Do you think that rpm would be there?
Are there instructions on how to run this test by any chance? Otherwise I think I'm ready to go.

So, you no longer need me to test this?
You can test the update in updates-testing and provide karma. But other than that, no. Thank you.
