I just did a yum update, updating to initscripts 8.31.1-1 (among other

I too had this happen on my laptop. It only happened on one of my three
rawhide systems so it's hard to figure out exactly why.

Things like that happen when instead of updating a package yum
decides to remove an old package first and later to install a new
version.  Look at
for similar reports.  Does it ring a bell?  If you have seen
something of that sort recently you likely should add some
comments in bugzilla.

When I tried to repeat something like that I could not.


What is happening here? Is the new package upgraded, then the older package removed, taking out files from the newly installed package? Or is the old package removed, then the new package performs an upgrade routine, which does not install the files in upgrade mode vs. install mode?

Profanity is the one language all programmers know best.
