Usually I see the later version coming back with no output. The earlier version usually is highly missing files or for files that changed timestamp or size.

Downloading the later rpm and using --replacepkgs and --replacefiles with rpm sounds like it will overwrite all previous discrepancies and put everything as it should be. It should also clean out the rubble from the earlier package from the rpm database. As earlier mentioned --replacefiles is debatable depending on your goal to preserve customized changes.
