Elasticsearch RPM installation conflicts old Elasticsearch

Hi there,

I'm pretty new to Elasticsearch. I have been trying to install it on my Centos 7 server. I have been following a tutorial for installing elasticsearch-oss. Because I was playing with it, I have uninstalled it by removing all ES files. Probably not the right way to uninstall a package :thinking:

At this moment I'm trying to install ES 7.x with RPM by following the original ES tutorial.
When I run the command yum.repos.d]# sudo yum install --enablerepo=elasticsearch elasticsearch I'm getting the next error:

Error: elasticsearch-oss conflicts with elasticsearch-7.9.2-1.x86_64
Error: elasticsearch conflicts with elasticsearch-oss-7.9.2-1.x86_64
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

So it seems my new install conflicts with the old one. How do I get rid of the old (Elasticsearch-oss) install?

Thanks in advanced!

Try to remove the elasticsearch-oss package using yum.

# yum remove elasticsearch-oss-7.9.2-1.x86_64

If this does not work, try installing the elasticsearch-oss again and remove using yum, not deleting the files.

Thanks @leandrojmp,

By reinstalling it and remove it the right way did the trick!
