Minor upgrade issue

On one box I had previously manually edited /etc/yum.repos.d/almalinux-baseos.repo (and some others) so ended up with a bunch of .rpmnew files which i had to mv over the .repo files before the upgrade would work.

Had the same happen on 8.8 beta too.

Also CRB is disabled by default so I had to add --enablerepo=crb to allow some glibc/gcc packages to update which were otherwise causing conflicts.

Otherwise had no issues with seven upgrades so far (plus two 8.8 betas).

If you edit repo config files that’s what will happen. dnf will only automatically replace/update them if they’re unmodified, as with any config files provided by packages.
