Centos7 yum can't upgrade


I’ve got OH2 installed on a Centros 7 via Unstable repository. I now want to upgrade to OH3 Unstable so I run a yum upgrade. I’t states there are no packages to be upgraded. With a yum install openhab it states theres a conflict.

Version:     2.5.12 (Build)

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I already did a yum clean all, any idea why OH3 can’t start install?


Hi @bastiaan_van_h,

Have a look at the migration page for recommendations on what to do before and after the migration, the page will tell you that the yum command to change packages is:

sudo yum swap openhab2 openhab
