I am trying to upgrade from F31 to F32 I have run it with dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=32 --allowerasing then when all packages are down loaded I get the following error: Transaction test error:
file /usr/lib/systemd/system/fwupd.service conflicts between attempted installs of fwupd-1.4.1-1.fc32.i686 and fwupd-1.4.1-1.fc32.x86_64.
any suggestions on what I need to do to get around this?
Hi @bmccall3, welcome to the Fedora community!
If you’ve not had a chance yet, please look at the #start-here category. It has some very useful information on using the forum and tips on Fedora usage.
You have both the
i686 (32 bits) and
x86_64 (64bits) version of the package installed. That causes confusion.
It is recommended you uninstall the .i686 package:
sudo dnf remove fwupd-1.4.1-1.fc32.i686
I don’t have fwupd-1.4.1-1.fc32.i686 installed the upgrade is trying to install it. Also It is not installed at all the only package installed is fwupd-1.3.9-2.fc31.x86_64.
It wouldn’t hurt to remove
fwupd before running the update, would it?
sudo dnf remove fwupd
Then run the update. After the update if you need fwupd, install it again with:
sudo dnf clean metadata
sudo dnf install fwupd
I ran that command and still renders the same result it still displays
Error: Transaction test error:
file /usr/lib/systemd/system/fwupd.service conflicts between attempted installs of fwupd-1.4.1-1.fc32.i686 and fwupd-1.4.1-1.fc32.x86_64
at the end of the up grade.
I have removed the packages rebooted and it is still trying to install the packages

as you can see it is selecting the package on it’s own.
I have ran dnf system-upgrade clean and started all over and still the same results.
Also I am running Fedora 31 KDE if that matters.
Hello I ran
dnf system-upgrade download --refresh --releasever=32 --allowerasing --exclude fwupd
and it worked thanks for all of the help.
marking this thread as fixed.
