Install the utility:

sudo yum install rpmconf


Description : This tool search for .rpmnew, .rpmsave and .rpmorig files and ask you what to do
with them:
Keep current version, place back old version, watch the diff or merge.

And finally run the utility:

sudo rpmconf -a

and if there is a conflict or rpmsave or rpmnew file, then you will see something like this:

Configuration file `/etc/default/grub’
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 354 Mar 16 22:49 /etc/default/grub.rpmsave
-rw-r–r– 1 root root 247 May 10 02:38 /etc/default/grub
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
==> Maintainer forced upgrade. Your old version has been backed up.

Y or I : install (keep) the package maintainer‘s version
N or O : return back to your original file
D : show the differences between the versions
