Resolving VIM conflicts on Fedora 25

I am not a great fan of Debian system. I prefer to use RPM based systems like Fedora and CentOS. My distro was not shipped with VIM so I had to use dnf package installer to install it.

sudo dnf install vim

I had received the following output:

file /usr/share/man/man1/vim.1.gz from install of vim-common-2:8.0.586-1.fc25.i686 conflicts with file from package vim-minimal-2:7.4.1989-2.fc25.i686

Solution:

Upgrade dnf:

sudo dnf upgrade

This will take a while. After that execute the following command:

sudo dnf install vim
Installing vim
Installing vim

Transaction check completed without errors:

Vim installation successful
Vim installation successful

Note: Never disable transaction checking as this will mess up your package installation system.
