Linux bash update - package conflicts

Hello.

I wanted to update my linux server with a newer bash.rpm package. However, when installing I get the:
file /bin/bash from install of bash-3.2-147.22.1.x86_64 conflicts with file from package bash-3.2-147.14.18.1.x86_64
error.

Ok, so I wanted to remove the older version of bash, but it seems there are a lot of dependencies (over 1000) - among them are packages which are needed by some production scripts to work.

Is there anodher way of updating bash package without having to remove older bash.rpm with all of the dependencies and then install the new bash.rpm package ?

Don't use "rpm -i <package>"
(-i means "install")!

Use "rpm -U <package>"
(-U means "upgrade").

If this fails, too, add the "--force" flag to the rpm command: "rpm -U --force <package>"

It worked without "force" flag.
