    Go on, have a guess
    Please be more patient - this is not an official support forum.

    You can delete those files from /etc/logrotate.d/ as their of little consequence if log rotation was working fine before your upgraded those rpms.

    Logrotation configuration files are located in the '/etc/logrotate.d' directory. These configuration files will not be written by the system when the logrotate package is updated. Instead it will move the current configuration by changing the extension to '.rpmorig' or it will just place the new configuration in the same directory with the '.rpmnew' extension. Logrotate does not process these files. That is why it is "Ignoring" them. You can either delete these files or replace the current configuration with the .rpmnew configuration files. Hope this helps!
