I suppose you update using rpm packaging system, if so try
rpm -Uhv packagename.rpm
if it gives the same error, then try to append --nodeps into rpm install command
rpm -i --nodeps package.rpm
It should do the job, but the best way to install conflicting packages is the usage of a tarball archive. If the app is available as a tarball(file.tar.gz or file.tgz or file.tar) downlod it, in the command line type
tar xvfz file.tar.gz
this is also valid if the archive is file.tgz, if the app is file.tar don't use z option
tar xvf file.tar
There is also archives with .bz2 file extension run
bunzip2 -dv file.bz2
there are nomerous possibilities of archiving scheme it may be a tar file that was bziped into bz2 archive, so when you unpack it you shoud unpack a tar file the way mentioned above.
So when you done uncompressing the archive cd into a directory where it was decompressed and read README or INSTALL files if any for further instructions on how to install, you'd probably need to run
These are three commands one of each is typed upon complition of previous one.
