When I run yum update, after dependency resolution I get the following error:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: php71w-pecl-imagick-3.4.3-1.w7.x86_64 (@webtatic)
           Requires: libMagickWand.so.5()(64bit)

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

My understanding is that ImageMagick wants to update to, but this doesn't provide libMagickCore.so.5 or libMagickWand.so.5, so it's blocking the upgrade because that would stop php71w-peclimagick from working?

Is it actually impossible here to upgrade ImageMagick, or would I need to keep it at an earlier version? What's the best way forward?

Note: php71w* come from webtatic.


One possible fix is the following:

yum install yum-plugin-versionlock
yum versionlock ImageMagick

After this the current ImageMagick version is locked and the rest of the updates work.

Is this a suitable fix or can anyone suggest anything better?
