The RPM Package Manager (RPM) is a powerful command line driven

package consists of an archive of files along with information about
the package like its version, a description, etc.

This update fixes assorted bugs in rpm. In addition to the referred bug numbers, this fixes prior test-transaction (such as when using yum) preventing %pretrans scriptlet symlink <-> directory replacement tricks from working.
