-U' and not 'rpm -i'
rpm is basically telling you that it can't install the new package because
some of the files in that package will override some existing files in the
However, when you Update, instead of install, rpm knows that it may be
required to remove some older packages. In this case the newer package
will probably have to be installed in place of the older package.
(Actually this is some simplification of the situation, but never mind)
In some cases this will not help, because rpm will not realize that the
package you want to add is suppose to override one existing package. In
some cases this can be worked-around by removing (rpm -e) the older
package and then installing the newer. However, this generally does not
work with libraries and similar packages that other packages depend upon.
