Hampton Beta 2
-- did not spot a prior version and remove it -- installed another over top ...
... possible RPM database error ?
Which MAY be causing this error:

What were you upgrading from? The only place I see a 3.8.5-2 is in the old
Now then, where's my wet noodle? ;-)
If you look in your upgrade.log, though, you'll probably see that a %pre or
%post failed due to the changing environment that was going on. There's a
reason we said beta 1 to beta 2 upgrades weren't supported.
... I plead youthful enthusiasm, and long service. <grin>
RH 7.1 patched current -> Hampton B1 -> Hampton B2
But I filed against anaconda rather than LprNG -- it looks like an
RPM transaction set generated by anaconda did not pick up and add the
remove of the prior version. and that is a generic Upgrade failure,
rather than H-B1 -> H-B2 related, is it not?
A LprNG filing _would_ have have earned the noodle. <smile>
No, we always add packages with "u" to the transaction set which is upgrade.
But if scriptlets fail, then you'll regularly get the double package install
And anaconda is especially where beta 1 -> beta 2 "upgrades" can't be supported :)
