Run "rpm -Uvh packagename.rpm" to better see what's happening. If
querying the rpm database don't use the full package name with version
number, dist tag, arch and suffix. "rpm -q j2re" is the proper command.
See "man rpm" and the documentation on www.rpm.org, especially the
max-rpm document is helpful.
