Upgrade from 9.3 to 9.4 problem

When trying to update my 9.3 Alma server to 9.4 I got this:

Problem: cannot install both iptables-libs-1.8.10-2.el9.x86_64 from Alma_9_alma9_BaseOS_x86_64_os and iptables-libs-1.8.8-6.el9_1.x86_64 from @System

  • package iptables-legacy-1.8.8-6.el9.2.x86_64 from @System requires (iptables-libs(x86-64) = 1.8.8-6.el9 or iptables-libs(x86-64) = 1.8.8-6.el9_1), but none of the providers can be installed
  • cannot install the best update candidate for package iptables-libs-1.8.8-6.el9_1.x86_64
  • problem with installed package iptables-legacy-1.8.8-6.el9.2.x86_64

I want to avoid upgrade using this: dnf update --best --allowerasing because automation in background.

The iptables-legacy is from EPEL, isn’t it? You have to wait for EPEL to rebuild it. (Possibly report to EPEL that the package needs to be rebuilt.)

At some point legacy becomes a burden. Is there any chance to port your processes into non-legacy solutions?

Tnx for response. Yeah it seems it’s EPEL package. And will see to migrate that to (nf_tables) on our Alma9 servers. Need to check why is legacy at first place there and then migrate to iptables-nft package.
