https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=260598 Bug ID: 260598 Summary: pkg update replacing existing package with an different package due to conflict Product: Base System Version: 13.0-RELEASE Hardware: Any OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Some People Priority: --- Component: bin Assignee: bugs@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org 13.0-RELEASE-p4 amd64 pkg 1.17.5 I observed what I consider to be an incorrect pkg behavior. It tries to replace an existing package with a different package that is not currently installed, apparently due to a name collision. pkg upgrade resulted in Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue... FreeBSD repository is up to date. All repositories are up to date. Checking for upgrades (1 candidates): 100% Processing candidates (1 candidates): 100% Checking integrity... done (1 conflicting) - yt-dlp-2021.12.01 conflicts with youtube_dl-2021.12.17 on /usr/local/bin/youtube-dl Checking integrity... done (0 conflicting) The following 5 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked): Installed packages to be REMOVED: youtube_dl: 2021.12.17 New packages to be INSTALLED: py38-websockets: 10.1 yt-dlp: 2021.12.01 Installed packages to be UPGRADED: gpodder: 3.10.17 -> 3.10.17_1 Installed packages to be REINSTALLED: pkg-1.17.5 Number of packages to be removed: 1 Number of packages to be installed: 2 Number of packages to be upgraded: 1 Number of packages to be reinstalled: 1 The process will require 1 MiB more space. Proceed with this action? [y/N]: n The only time I could see this behavior being acceptable is if I were attempting to install yt-dlp while I have youtube_dl installed. Since I'm doing an upgrade it should only offer to upgrade youtube_dl if there is an upgrade available for it. It should not try to remove the installed package and replace it with something from a different project. This behavior is dangerous - it could cause issues anytime there is a name collision. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
