I haven't found an example for you to copy, but note there are

I think deleting the symlink manually may be revealing a problem in
rpm. It seems to treat /usr/share/javadoc/test-1/hello (from the old
package) and /usr/share/javadoc/test/hello (from the new package) as
the same thing. Since the new package is installing
/usr/share/javadoc/test/hello, it therefore decides to 'skip' the old
'hello' file, rather than 'erase' it.
I'm not sure yet why these two paths are considered to be the same...
