when issuing the command dnf upgrade on centos 8 I receive the following:

(try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages or '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)

Any clue on what I can do about this issue without having to use --allowerasing and --skip-broken as I am trying to understand what the message means, but unfortunately I can't tell which package is causing this issue.

I also noticed this:

[root@localhost ~]# yum list installed | grep snmp

Edit 8th June 2020: I filed a bug on Redhat because I have a premium support, bug #1773441. Redhat is no longr building net-snmp-perl, so I think net-snmp-perl 1:5.8-12.el8_1.1 will be available soon.

I found the problem, it seems that net-snmp-perl-1:5.8-10.el8 doesn't exist for Centos 8, why installing net-snmp-perl, it downgrades these packages to 1:5.8-7.el8. Apparently it was a bad idea going with Centos 8 this time. There are many missing packages that I had to manually install, such as snmptt, any idea how one can request this package to become available for Centos 8
