This is the on;y trpotyrd retort msg.

Unfortunately, the problem in need of solving happened on the previous rpm
invocation, not this invocation.

Note that rpm-5.4.15 already automates the fixup necessary for “… run database recovery.”
so there is something else systematically (i.e. like configuration) that prevented the
automatic mixup from succeeding.
