I did a local install of a package xxx.rpm with dnf dnf install /home/yyy/xxx.rpm Installation ok. dnf info xxx confirmed that xxx is installed. Also does dnf history. Then I uninstalled xxx with "dnf erase xxx". dnf history shows uninstallation.

No I want to reinstall local install xxx.rpm as before, but dnf shows quote

error: Problem: conflicting requests - package xxx.x86_64 is disabled


dnf check no error.

What can I do to reinstall xxx.rpm? Or to enable package xxx.rpm for installation?

edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


What does dnf install xxx.rpm -v output?

Problem solved. Sorry for late reply.

package didn't remove settings when it was uninstalled.

It needed something like:

rm -rf ~/.config/xxx/ rm -rf ~/.xxx/

After that installation was possible.

Message from dnf is confusing.
