F25 chkconfig upgrade fails

asked 2017-05-18 14:11:47 +0000

Today I upgraded Fedora from F23 to F25.

Everything went well but "chkconfig" fails to upgrade. Here's the output from "dnf upgrade":

Upgrading: chkconfig x86_64 1.8-1.fc25 fedora 179 k

Running transaction check

Transaction check succeeded.

Running transaction Upgrading : chkconfig-1.8-1.fc25.x86_64 1/2

Error unpacking rpm package chkconfig-1.8-1.fc25.x86_64

Error unpacking rpm package chkconfig-1.8-1.fc25.x86_64

error: unpacking of archive failed on file /etc/init.d: cpio: rename

chkconfig-1.8-1.fc25.x86_64 was supposed to be installed but is not!

Verifying : chkconfig-1.8-1.fc25.x86_64 1/2

chkconfig-1.7-1.fc23.x86_64 was supposed to be removed but is not!

Verifying : chkconfig-1.7-1.fc23.x86_64 2/2

Failed: chkconfig.x86_64 1.8-1.fc25

Did anyone encountered this issue or have some insight how to resolve it? Thank you!

did everything else upgrade correctly and have you restarted?

Yes, everything else went well and upgraded correctly. I restarted the system.

Try clearing your packages cache and upgrade it again. Maybe the package on the mirror you downloaded it from was bad.

dnf clean packages && dnf update

I just run clean packages and update, the result is the same as described in the original post, failed to upgrade "chkconfig".

dnf upgrade-to chkconfig-1.8-1

I hope it works!

Unfortunately that produces the same error as mentioned earlier.
