Hi I'm having issues with some kind of conflict that I don't know how to fix when I do a software update I get this in my terminal! I have ran the dnf clean packages and tried updating and I still get this message. Thanks DMoe

What is the exact command you are running to do the update?

I had something similar when I was trying to install Steam at one point. Then I did this and it worked. Read it through and try it out

su -c "yum update"

I use su -c "yum update" to update my system or dnf update

I guess you have had a broken update process before (e.g. due to power failure or something like that), and you are left with duplicated packages. Run the following command:

rpm -e --nodeps $(dnf -C repoquery --duplicated --latest-limit=-1 -q)

And then try updating again.

Firstly, did you install a 32-bit version of glibc?

i686 = 32-bit Intel x86 arch 
x86_64 = 64-bit Intel x86 arch


sudo dnf remove krb5-libs-1.15.1-28.fc26.i686

Clean all and show dups:

dnf clean all 

dnf list --showduplicates glibc

Requires Rescue Mode if only 1 glibc version is installed:

rpm -e --nodeps --justdb glibc glibc-common

x86_64: dnf install glibc

Also, try:

DNF History:

sudo dnf clean all && sudo dnf check-update

sudo dnf history

sudo dnf history undo 23 -y

Hi Nicholas, I have only installed 64 bit intel x86 arch
