I have just tried upgrading 27 to 28 and during transaction check states conflicts with fwupdate-efi-8-4.fc26.i686 Anyone have suggestions, I believe I have upgraded this machine since version 24 the same way. I also have tried software upgrade route and issue arises with same file, and i have used rm -rf that file but error still arises I have tried dnf clean packages and it shows 0 packages removed after i removed with this command I also have used dnf clean all command and same issue. i do not believe i had this issue from 26 to 27

Using rm won't fix the package conflict, because (except for in its verification mode), RPM (and higher-level tools like DNF or Yum) work with a separate database of packages, not actually by looking at the system. Try adding --allowerasing and --best to your system-upgrade command line.

If that doesn't work, try:

dnf remove fwupdate-efi.i686

... which will probably work if you are on an x86_64 system and just happen to have the i686 package also installed.

This won't work if you have an i686 system, because it will try to basically remove the world.

It should not remove the world. Nothing really requires fwupdate-efi/ To be sure, run dnf with the --noautoremove option.

dnf --noautoremove remove fwupdate-efi
