Problem: package grub2-efi-1:2.02-0.40.fc26.i686 requires grub2-tools =
1:2.02-0.40.fc26, but none of the providers can be installed
- grub2-tools-1:2.02-0.40.fc26.i686 does not belong to a distupgrade repository
- problem with installed package grub2-efi-1:2.02-0.40.fc26.i686

If I try removing grub2-efi in the hope that the upgrade will then proceed I run the risk
of leaving the machine totally unbootable.
If this is an i686 system you can safely remove grub2-efi, i686 Fedora installs
have never supported / used efi booting.
We should probably still look into fixing this in grub2 though, looking at:
grub2's i686 builds no longer have a -efi subpackage (which makes perfect
sense). So the grub2-pc.i686 package is going to need an Obsoletes for grub2-efi,
I will mail Peter Jones asking him to add this.
