You bring back unwanted memories of Red Hat RPM. It was horrible. "Your program installation failed." Try again. "Your program cannot be installed because it is already installed." Uninstall. "Your program cannot be uninstalled because it is not installed." ad infinitum.The only thing I didn't like about Linux back then was the backup software, it sucked big time.
Hard to understand and it only backed up files and some software if you're lucky, I wanted to create a system image and there was nothing except clonezilla which is a nightmare at best.
Backing up files and software is no good it the HDD or SSD fails, then in 2016 I found I could use Macrium Free Rescue Media to create a system image which worked great and now I use both Macrium and Foxclone...happy days.
