The Mageia distribution recently published a large batch of package updates. For the most part the new wave of updates affected more than 1,300 packages and appears to have gone smoothly for most users. However, a few have run into a package conflict which arises when 32-bit packages are installed on an otherwise 64-bit system. "Most of us will have updated our systems by now, and most of the updates have been as smooth as silk. But! So far there have been two reports of problems with the Grand Update, both caused by having 32-bit libraries installed on a 64-bit system." Uninstalling the 32-bit packages and attempting the update again should work around the issue.
