file X from install of Y conflicts with file from package Z

Late time for a new update of my linux server.

This time, yum update got me these errors:

file /usr/bin/shasum from install of perl-Digest-SHA-5.50-1.el5.rf.i386 conflicts with file from package perl-Digest-SHA-PurePerl-5.48-1.el5.rf.noarch
file /usr/share/man/man1/shasum.1.gz from install of perl-Digest-SHA-5.50-1.el5.rf.i386 conflicts with file from package perl-Digest-SHA-PurePerl-5.48-1.el5.rf.noarch

You will notice that there are 2 distinct packages:
perl-Digest-SHA-5.50-1.el5.rf.i386
and
perl-Digest-SHA-PurePerl-5.48-1.el5.rf.noarch

I went with removing the oldest one because the new one was being marked for installation:
yum erase perl-Digest-SHA-PurePerl-5.48-1.el5.rf.noarch

and problem solved. This one was way too easy. Why I posted? Well, google search only yielded 1 spanish result. One. Well, this will make it 2 :) And in english.
