You need to upgrade sh-utils at the same time (they're using the same info 
page these days).
Comment 2 CoreDump 2001-11-18 17:11:52 EST
I did so, the bug message still exists.

After install:
# rpm -q sh-utils

# rpm -q fileutils

As you can see, the older version is also reported by rpm.
Comment 3 CoreDump 2001-11-18 18:04:02 EST
Ok, the problem is that /etc/info-dir already has entries like:
* yes: (sh-utils)yes invocation.               Print a string indefinitely.

This rpm (fileutils-4.1.1-1) wants to change it like:
* yes: (coreutils)yes invocation.               Print a string indefinitely.

Instead of changing the entry, it complains and fails to completely upgrade.
I consider this a bug which requires a lot of manual editing in /etc/info-dir
to remedy. Cutting all of the lines with (sh-utils), (textutils), (fileutils)
and 3-4 other lines made upgrading possible.

The latest sh-utils and fileutils-4.1.2-1 still has the bug!!
