See:

$ rpm -qa|grep -iE "bluez\-util|pm\-util"
bluez-utils-2.25-4
pm-utils-0.15-1

The bluez one is for bluetooth, I don't see how/why exactly it could conflict
w/ pm-utils. Maybe download the .rpm and install it using --force (it would
better to understand how they conflict, here I could install one after the
other w/o conflict)? Or uninstall bluez-utils if you don't use bluetooth
devices?

BTW I just uninstalled it as I don't need bluething :-), also had to disable
the call to `bluez-pin --dbus` present in the session settings (bluetooth
service vanished too).
