When I try and do:

   sudo dnf groupinstall -y "KDE Plasma Workspaces"

I get the following error:

Running transaction check
Transaction check succeeded.
Running transaction test
The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful transaction.
You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'.
Error: Transaction check error:
  file /usr/lib64/sasl2/ conflicts between attempted installs of kdepim-runtime-libs-1:18.04.3-1.fc29.x86_64 and libkgapi-18.12.2-1.fc29.x86_64

Any suggestions greatly appreciated...

I can't confirm that issue on the fresh F29 installation. The command you have entered, finished with the success.

I see two ways to solve your issue:

  1. Try to run: sudo dnf clean all && sudo dnf update --refresh && sudo dnf groupinstall -y "KDE Plasma Workspaces"
  2. or follow this guide:

Current version of kdepim-runtime-libs is kdepim-runtime-libs-1:18.12.2-1.fc29. So you should upgrade this version as the first step to resolve the conflict. You should probably update everything to the latest version.

Thanks Comment @villykruse Have a nice day.!! I Updated....and check my F29 Server System [HP]


This is not installed on my system with F29 KDE pre-installed. Therefore, it seems to be installed except the program.


This program is normally installed and works fine. Therefore, install the program you want to install except the library.

Thanks comment @szydell ... and I add the related article by adding what I mentioned.

It is necessary to remove the conflicting programs during installation and install dnf in order to update it. This can happen if you want to install a specific program, which is caused by a conflict between the previously installed program and the program you want to install.

Be careful not to install unnecessary programs because you can often see them when you use the * character during installation, or when there is a dependency between programs.

Since KDE installation works well without any problems during the initial installation process, it only works well when you resolve conflicts.
