The answer to that seemed to be to uninstall it and install afresh,
but instead I was told that there was nothing to uninstall. So it
both is and isn't.

How to recover from this?

Paste the exact command and response you use and get.

Guess: check the case of letters.

The case of letters didn't play a part. I went to the directory with the
rpm, which contained only that single file, did "dir", and pasted the
name of the file into the command "rpm -Uvh <filename>". I always do that
when long filenames are involved, in order to prevent errors.
