Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Security update fails due to dependency conflicts:

     Problem 1: cannot install both json-c-0.13.1-3.el8.x86_64 and json-c-0.13.1-2.el8.x86_64
     Problem 2: problem with installed package dhcp-client-12:4.3.6-45.el8.x86_64
     Problem 3: problem with installed package sssd-ipa-2.5.2-2.el8_5.4.x86_64
     Problem 4: problem with installed package sssd-common-pac-2.5.2-2.el8_5.4.x86_64
     Problem 5: problem with installed package sssd-ad-2.5.2-2.el8_5.4.x86_64
     Problem 6: problem with installed package sssd-2.5.2-2.el8_5.4.x86_64
    (try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages or '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)
