  I checked that I was talking from experience as 1 or more weeks
ago. For a single package install indeed, dnf and yum are now

  I figured I have a lot of duplicates left from some earlier update,
for example:

$ rpm -q xz-libs

  So, I should work on some script to rpm -e --justdb the older ones.
The initial report in this thread was due to another kind of error, e.g.
"yum update" says among thousands of other lines:

xz-libs-5.1.2-15alpha.fc22.i686 is a duplicate with

but yum output could be good as input for some script attempting
to fix my rawhide, example:

4:texlive-zxjafbfont-svn28539.0-2.fc22.noarch is a duplicate with
4:texlive-zxjafont-svn30105.0.2-2.fc22.noarch is a duplicate with
4:texlive-zxjatype-svn28541.0.6-2.fc22.noarch is a duplicate with

  Just to have an idea:

$ sudo yum update >& /tmp/yum
$ wc -l /tmp/yum
3589 /tmp/yum
$ sudo dnf update >& /tmp/dnf
$ wc -l /tmp/dnf
2 /tmp/dnf
$ cat /tmp/dnf
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.

  If I manage to make a clean bug report I will submit it. Rawhide changes
too fast that when one takes some time, and fills a bug report, it may have
been already fixed :)
