Hi,

I was trying to upgrade my OS maintenance level from AIX 5.2 level 5 to level 7 and four filesets are BROKEN, and I was able to remove three filesets

# lppchk -v
lppchk:  The following filesets need to be installed or corrected to bring
        the system to a consistent state:

bos.net.ipsec.keymgt 5.2.0.75  (BROKEN)
bos.net.uucp 5.2.0.75          (BROKEN)
bos.rte.printers 5.2.0.75      (BROKEN)
printers.rte 5.2.0.75          (BROKEN)

But I am unable to remove bos.rte.printers 5.2.0.75, I tried to install latest versions and also tried to remove the base version but everything fails. And I have also tried force remove and force install without requisites.

Here is some information after I tried eveything I mentioned above ...

$ oslevel -rl 5200-07
Fileset                                 Actual Level           Recommended ML
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
bos.rte.printers                        5.2.0.40               5.2.0.75

$ lppchk -v
lppchk:  The following filesets need to be installed or corrected to bring
        the system to a consistent state:

 bos.rte.printers 5.2.0.75               (BROKEN)
 bos.rte.printers 5.2.0.76               (BROKEN)
 bos.rte.printers 5.2.0.85               (BROKEN)
