Sometimes when running YaST, rpm, smart and/or apt at the same time, the
rpm database can get confused.

What I would do is `rpm --rebuilddb`. For me that had solved the isssue
till now. Others have done the following: de-install the RPM(s), run `rpm
--rebuilddb` install the RPM(s). Some even used `rpm --force whatever.rpm`

It could always be that you need to re-install RC1, but then RC1 is not a
finished product, so mthat is to be expected.
