Status of Thunderbird in Rocky Linux?


Some time ago I installed Thunderbird from Rocky’s plus repository, since it supported GPG, contrary to the “official” package. Now when I try to dnf update I get this:

 Problem: cannot install both thunderbird-102.12.0-1.el8_8.x86_64 and
  - package requires thunderbird(x86-64) =, but none of the providers can be installed
  - cannot install the best update candidate for package
  - problem with installed package
(try to add '--allowerasing' to command line to replace conflicting packages or '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)

For some time I’ve been using the suggested --nobest option, but after a while I thought I’d rather ask about the status of this package.



thunderbird in plus is longer available as pgp support is now built in to the normal package.
