Thank you very much,
Not sure what you are asking...more info would help
1) What are you trying to install?
2) Is it a downloaded RPM or a custom built RPM?
3) Is is a binary RPM or a source RPM?
4) What RPM command are you using to install?
5) What is the output of the command you are running?
If you can get us this information; we can have a better chance at helping you
FWIW you can upgrade with the -U option
root@host# rpm -Uvh package.rpm
