Firstly You don't need to remove a package before updating it. from the
command line sinmply use rpm -U [filename].rpm this will handle the remove
for you. There should be an option on GNOrpm to Upgrade automagically.
Secondly: fetchmail and fetchmailconf are seperate rpms. you nee to remove
fetchmailconf witha command line like rpm -e fetchmailconf.
