I had previously removed Firefox from Fedora Silverblue 33 with
rpm-ostree override remove firefox. This worked well and for a while i only had the flatpak version of firefox installed on my system. However, this morning I did an
rpm-ostree upgrade and it installed the rpm version of firefox again without me telling it to.
It is now permanently installed on my system. If I try and re-run the override command, I get:
error: Override already exists for package 'firefox'. If I try and
rpm-ostree override reset firefox, then reboot, then re-apply the override, and again reboot, then I still have two versions of firefox installed .
I also tried resetting the override, and
rpm-ostree install firefox, but I got the error that firefox was already installed.
I’m not sure what else to try and am open to suggestions.
[dave@localhost ~]$ rpm-ostree install firefox error: "firefox" is already provided by: firefox-85.0-8.fc33.x86_64. Use --allow-inactive to explicitly require it. [dave@localhost ~]$ rpm-ostree install firefox --allow-inactive error: Package/capability 'firefox' is already requested [dave@localhost ~]$ rpm-ostree override remove firefox error: Override already exists for package 'firefox'```
