That's what it does... You probably didn't deinstall your old
wu-ftpd package using rpm. The installer uses the rpm database to
figure out which packages you have installed.
Reassigning to anaconda (the installer) so they can check for

does proftpd have a "Conflicts: wu-ftpd" in the package? If not, we try to
offer wu-ftpd as a surrogate parent for /usr/sbin/in.ftpd. You would need to
deselect wu-ftpd in "customize pacakges to upgrade" if this explicit Conflicts:
