Re: [K12OSN] Update Failure



This is a failure of the packager not your access. There is a file that
both packages "share" and one package is trying to update the other's
file. That is a no-no!

I recommend NOT using sos and to use sysreport instead as that really
_does_ contain the /usr/sbin/sysreport binary.

You can either exclude the sos package (yum -y --exclude=sos update) or
remove the sos package (yum remove sos) or you can download manually and
install manually with rpm (rpm -Uvh sysreport*.rpm sos*.rpm  - this will
likely fail so a retry with "rpm -Uvh sysreport*.rpm ; rpm -Uvh
sos*.rpm" will split it up. If it _still_ fails you need to decide which
package to keep. Read the info on each before the deletion with rpm -qpi
sysreport*.rpm, - the flag -qpi means query package info from the listed
rpm file. leave off the "p" and the *.rpm to get the data from the
installed sysreport package. rpm -ql foo will show all files installed
by the package foo.)
