    Each night, when the automatic update script /scripts/upcp runs, I get email that includes
    this error message:

    error: failed dependencies:
    exim conflicts with sendmail-8.11.6-27.72

    This is followed by a number of lines
    that show apache, openssl, and sendmail
    being retrieved. This is repeated every night.

    I tried the commands

    rpm -q sendmail
    rpm -q sendmail-8.11.6-27.72

    and in both cases it says that the package
    is not installed. If it's not isntalled, how
    can there be a conflict? What's a good
    solution for this?

    User iminteractive recommends:

    > try rpm -qa |grep sendmail

    I did, and this is what I got:

    sendmail-doc-8.11.6-27.72
    sendmail-cf-8.11.6-27.72

    So we do have packages sendmail-doc
    and sendmail-cf installed.

    I did 'rpm -q -l' for each, and found that
    all files belonging to sendmail-doc are within
    the directory /usr/share/doc/sendmail,
    and all files belonging to sendmail-cf
    are within the directory /usr/share/sendmail-cf.

    It's hard to see how that would conflict with
    exim.

    I also did 'rpm -qa | grep exim' and found
    only one package:

    exim-4.24-30_cpanel_stmpcontrol_antivirus_rewrite_mailman

    None of the files belonging to this, as
    listed by 'rpm -q -l', reside within /usr/share/doc/sendmail or within /usr/share/sendmail-cf.

    I would just:

    rpm -e sendmail-doc-8.11.6-27.72
    rpm -e sendmail-cf-8.11.6-27.72

    No point in leaving them hanging around if they are not in use.
