Well I rebooted and in 5 minutes the updates were found. There were 570 updates- 40 to be removed- and 112 to install. However the package manager gets no farther than the install packages!! How do I get to install the package updates?

I went to the " edit " in the package manager and found something that called for 13 or fourteen packages to be updated; after that I was able to almost update everything!! I got errors and was told to " RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^drakx-kbd-mouse-x11$"; };" but I do not have any idea where or how to do this. I now have two os one at 2010 and the other at 2014. How can I fix this, please?? Thanks!!
