I have to admit I don't know much about the internal working of yum/dnf.
When I install a new version of Fedora I "yum remove libreoffice*". I
then install the latest version I am using "yum install *.rpm".
I have a cron job which runs "yum update" every night (in fact I have
moved to "dnf update" recently). I have always thought that this update
only affects applications I have installed via the repos. Hence no need
to modify yum.conf in the way you suggest.
So far, so good.

I use Fedora and I generally use "yum localinstall" to install my RPMs.
I also add an exclude=libreoffice* in yum.conf so that yum does not
try to update libreoffice when a new copy is pushed to the Fedora
repositories. This then causes yum to ignore the RPMs that match the
wild-card, so dependencies fail, and it refuses to install until I
remove the exclude from yum.conf.
is setting the exclude no longer needed in yum.conf as long as I keep
up with the latest releases?
should I just use rpm to install this?
did I do something wrong?
Just looking for thoughts.
