most likely the mirror was updating while you were updating, so some packages are now mis-matched.

please try again later.

you may need to delete the offending package from your rpm cache first.
command for doing so via urpmi is
Code: Select all
urpmi --clean
but as I do not use dnf, I am unsure of the command.

With dnf it would be:

Code: Select all
dnf clean all

It will remove all cached items. Then try again after updating your system.

Problem solved: a new upgrade of kernel proposed by drakconf removed old kernel installation
