Is this ok [y/N]: y
I do upgrades testing.
after the fedora-easy-karma command there are two evolution updates (server and server-langpacks) to test.
In a new terminal I give the evolution command, (evolution is not on my machine)
terminal asks me if it should install evolution.
and than the install halts with the error as mentioned.
Okay, thanks. Unfortunately, I hear of the fedora-easy-karma for the first time.
What exact commands are you running, with what arguments, please? Also, how did the evolution-data-server-langpacks get installed on your machine, please?
If you do not use the dnf command directly, or you pass it to install the advisory, then it's a problem of the command you use to install to specify also already installed packages on "the command line" of the dnf, in which case the dnf rejects the install with the error you see.
I can reproduce the error simply by running dnf as:
$ sudo dnf install evolution-data-server

Package evolution-data-server-3.42.3-1.fc35.x86_64 is already installed.
Nothing to do.
When I try to update the package with only the evolution-data-server packages installed, I get a success after running:
$ sudo dnf update --advisory FEDORA-2022-f90519fad7
which installs (updates) only the evolution packages and nothing else.
Would you mind to revert your negative karma at:
because the problem you face is unrelated to the updated bits, please?
