Description Jaspreet Kaur 2020-06-19 18:04:18 UTC
Description of problem: 

We have an operator with CSV dependencies. When we install it, we expect OLM to install the dependencies as well. However, if the dependencies are already in a namespace, the operator won't install.

We have to delete the dependent operators in order to install the operator.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results: Failed to install the operator because of dependencies being already installed

Expected results: Should be easily installed if it already exists.

Setting target release to current development version (4.6) for investigation. Where fixes (if any) are required/requested for prior versions, cloned BZs will be created when appropriate.
