What if we have a package that
yum/dnf does not want to uninstall due to the broken dependencies or an uninstall scriptlets that won’t work?
The error itself can look like:
error: %preun(PACKAGE) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
If that happens, use either
--noscripts options with
rpm -e (erase):
# rpm -e --nodeps --noscripts PACKAGE
