this might be a bit of a newby question, sorry for that. I have installed ShinyProxy on CentOS by first downloading the file
shinyproxy_2.2.2_x86_64.rpm and installing it with
yum install shinyproxy_2.2.2_x86_64.rpm. As far as I can tell,
yum update does not update ShinyProxy and there is no “automatic” install such as
yum install shinyproxy - please correct me if I am wrong.
So now there is a new version out and my intuitive guess would have been to download the new rpm and update ShinyProxy with
yum update shinyproxy_2.3.0_x86_64.rpm. But I receive the following error message:
Examining shinyproxy_2.3.0_x86_64.rpm: shinyproxy-2.3.0-1.x86_64
Cannot install package shinyproxy-2.3.0-1.x86_64. It is obsoleted by installed package shinyproxy-2.2.2-1.x86_64
No packages marked for update
So somehow yum thinks the old rpm is newer. Is that normal, what do I do wrong? Do I need to uninstall first? Is there a way to use the yum update mechanism?
