I can confirm this bug, except that it would not remove systemd but wine*.

Remove  72 Packages

Freed space: 1.0 G
Is this ok [y/N]:

Comment 3 Steve 2021-05-05 14:16:38 UTC
There is no dependency error by upgrading with the GUI (Gnome-Software) and rdma-core* is deinstalled after upgrading.

Comment 4 John Gotts 2021-05-08 23:33:28 UTC
Probably it would be better to fix the package rather than requiring you to remove 1 GB worth of packages before the upgrade can proceed. Seems a bit excessive to have to remove wine to upgrade to Fedora 34. It's like 50 packages, right?

Comment 5 Jeff lats 2021-05-09 23:34:32 UTC
Note that in my case it was trying to remove systemd not wine.

Comment 6 Honggang LI 2021-05-10 00:40:02 UTC
Remove the rdma-core.i686 package with "rpm -e --nodeps" before you upgrade. That is the workaround.

Comment 7 Dominik 'Rathann' Mierzejewski 2021-05-17 10:37:29 UTC
Duplicate of bug 1919864.

Comment 8 Troy Volin 2021-06-19 02:55:49 UTC
The recent update to rdma-core (in f33 and f34) to rdma-core-35.0-1 breaks the previously-working fix to the "rdma-core prevents F33 to F34 system upgrade" bug.
Specifically, advisory FEDORA-2021-a9fa349382 fixed that by adding obsoletes in the RPM spec which don't work for version 35.0-1:
90	+ %if 0%{?fedora} >= 34
91	+ # self obsoletes to remove i686 multilib package when updating to F34
92	+ Obsoletes: rdma-core < 34.0-3
93	+ %endif
94	+

So when 35.0-1 got introduced, it needed to also update the .spec file to update the Obsoletes to "Obsoletes: rdma-core < 35.0-1"

If you push that change, nobody will need to do any "rpm -e --nodeps rdma-core.i686" as part of their upgrade path.

Comment 9 Leszek Matok 2021-07-03 20:38:14 UTC
Trying to upgrade F33->F34 I hit this thing.

Thinking I might have upgraded F33 too much, I did yum downgrade rdma\*

Now I have

And yet, Error: 
 Problem: rdma-core-31.0-1.fc33.i686 has inferior architecture
  - rdma-core-31.0-1.fc33.x86_64 does not belong to a distupgrade repository
  - problem with installed package rdma-core-31.0-1.fc33.i686

So NO, it is NOT an issue with the F33 35.0-1 update. Downgrading from it still does NOT allow upgrade to F34.

So then I searched and found this bug, but it says the issue is with Obsoletes < 34.0? I already have 31.0 and still can't upgrade. Even trying to yum update only rdma\* says
 Problem: package rdma-core-35.0-1.fc34.x86_64 obsoletes rdma-core < 34.0-3 provided by rdma-core-31.0-1.fc33.i686
  - cannot install the best update candidate for package rdma-core-31.0-1.fc33.x86_64
  - problem with installed package rdma-core-31.0-1.fc33.i686

Clearly F34 simply doesn't have rdma-core.i686, confirmed by yum --releasever=34 info rdma-core

And yet, it's required by existing software (yes, for this system it's WINE _from_Fedora_repositories_, but I support algo-trading software on RHEL which also depends on 32-bit rdma+libibverbs - guess RHEL7 will be the terminal release for actual enterprise Linux if this creeps down to RHEL8?)

I'm baffled how a bug like this was caught in March (reported on the forum), and this BZ is from May... and here I am, unable to upgrade to a final F34 in July. Does anyone not have WINE installed on their "home" Fedora? Except the developers who don't even use it daily, of course...

Comment 10 Lindsay MacVean 2021-08-05 14:37:15 UTC
When upgrading from 33 to 34 I used --allowerasing and this seemed to work for me to only remove that single package (I am still waiting for upgrade so have not tested Wine on 34 yet)

As in 
$ sudo dnf system-upgrade download --releasever=34 --allowerasing
