[INFO] failed to commit transaction conflicting files - smb.conf.original

Post by erikdubois » Sun Dec 02, 2018 8:54 pm

You sometimes get messages like these

Code: Select all

error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
arcolinux-system-config-git: /etc/samba/smb.conf.original exists in filesystem
or something very similar

All you need to do is get the conflicting file out of the way.

Option 1 : delete it

sudo rm /etc/samba/smb.conf.orginal

Option 2 : rename it

sudo mv /etc/samba/smb.conf.orginal /etc/samba/smb.conf.orginal.backup

You can apply this knowledge to other instances as well.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
