I would like to upgrade package A and at the same time erase package B.

There are dependencies between the packages so I would like to do both operations as one transaction.

This can be done with 2 commands:

rpm --erase packageB.rpm rpm -Uvh packageA.rpm

Can it be done as one command?


You can't do it with the rpm command on the command line, but you can do it with yum shell:

# yum shell
Setting up Yum Shell
> install package1
> erase package2
> run
