SoundTouch 2.0.0-3.fc27 holding up updates

For several days now my system has been trying to update to SoundTouch 2.0.0-3.fc27 and has been unable to do so because of dependency issues. The system recommends to use --best and --allowerasing to correct dependencies. However when you use --best --allowerasing the system wants to remove 150 packages, including libreoffice, gnome-shell, gnome-shell-extensions, evolution, eclipse and gnucash just to name a few that are important to me and my installation. Is there any hope of being able to update without removing all these packages? It will be about like doing a fresh install and setting up everything again.

Hope that not the answer!!

Stupidly I did what the system recommends. And now my system is basically unusable.

I can no longer start X, but I don't know whether it is because of something --best --allow-erasing deleted or whether the nVidia driver doesn't work with the latest kernel. And I can't find 4.16 kernels to try so my system is dead while I cruise the net in vain looking for somebody with similar symptoms who actually fixed it. Lots of reports of black screens with latest kernels on https://www.if-not-true-then-false.co...

So maybe it's two separate problems that happened at the same time. Regardless, this really sucks. My Fedora setup is now unusable, I can't get to email for 3 days.
