I'm an idiot -- yep - I see what I was misreading. It can't find python-zope-interface (which is required by python-zopy-component) and *THAT* is the real error. The conflicts are just yum/rpm saying - "Hey, there are other problems, but not related".

My bad - sorry to have troubled you.

FreeIPA conflicts shouldn't prevent installing of other packages. For me it looks like "python-zope-interface" is missing.

Yes- this comes after IPA is installed and running (this is actually a client upgraded to a master-replica). Then trying to install Let'sEncrypt gives the error:

yum install -y letsencrypt

That is when the conflict errors occur. The problem with "ignoring", is that you can't force yum to just do the install anyway unless you download the packages directly and use rpm to install. Is that the suggestion here?

Hi all,

Trying to get letsencrypt working for an AWS instance of FreeIPA - and run into an odd conflict I have not dealt with before. When trying to install Let's Encrypt after a clean install of IPA, I am seeing:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: python2-certbot-0.12.0-4.el7.noarch (epel)
           Requires: python-zope-interface
Error: Package: 1:python-zope-component-4.1.0-1.el7.noarch (epel)
           Requires: python-zope-interface
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem

These packages are not needed for freeipa. So it may be broken dependency of letsencrypt?

Any ideas? Maybe this is something known in the AWS world?


Yum check gives false positive errors about IPA packages, this will be fixed in RHEL7.4. You can safely ignore those warnings.
