  I will start overwith the update to make sure all the packages
downloaded, and let you know if success happens.
FWIW, I had several file conflicts resulting from standard F24 packages that blocked the upgrade to F25.




that required dnf erase <offendingpackage>. Sometimes these erasures had a slightly worrying amount of dependencies (a dozen, not hundreds, though), and in each case they reinstalled smoothly after the OS upgrade. Two of those have been promptly fixed by the packagers, and apparently are no longer an isssue.

This got me thinking if there's a common root cause that could be checked automatically? I didn't quite understand what exactly happened in the affected packages to cause it.
