Yes. Multiple people have touched the package, keeping this different
versioning scheme. It's a lost cause.

True. I know that my comment was off-topic.
Btw, it's odd already that "dnf update rpm*.rpm" refuses to install
packages that are not installed as older version. Compare that with
"rpm -Uvh …" and "rpm -Fvh …". It would make sense to mimic those
two commands in tools that install from repositories.
no - that is correct and i would blame rpm that "U" also installs
* on my machines i try to uninstall all unneeded stuff
* koji download for testing
* a dozen of subpackages
* instead compare 5 minutes which one i need click
on all 5 downloadlinks and "dnf update *.rpm"
(if it would work) would only update as told and
should only pull one of them if it is a new dependency
Instead, every two years and a half, developers of new tools come up
with new (mis-)behaviour. Sometimes with strange rationales, sometimes
with none. Originally, Yum didn't look at latest packages when asking
it to install something. It picked the first version it could find,
only to replace it immediately afterwards during the first "yum update".
only the fact that DNF downloads/refreshs metadata when doing a
localinstall / localupdate is a regression - YUM was smart in that
context and did it if a dependency could not be solved with the local
files from the commandline
In DNF, the manual is full of renamed [deprecated] commands already.
dnf [options] update
Deprecated alias for the Upgrade Command.
dnf [options] erase <spec>...
Deprecated alias for the Remove Command.
Deprecated alias for the Distro-sync command.
dnf [options] update-to <package-nevr-specs>...
Deprecated alias for the Upgrade-To Command
who cares about millions of documents, users trained things over years
and scripts written when draw backward compatibility is so much easier....
