The rpm command modes of operation

The command used to work with RPM package files is rpm. To manage RPM packages, the rpm command has options that let you list all the packages that are installed, upgrade existing packages to newer versions, and query packages for information (such as the files or documentation included with the package). There is also a verify option to check that all files that make up the package are present and unchanged.

The rpm command has the following modes of operation:

. install (-i)
. upgrade (-U)
. freshen (-F)
. query (-q)
. verify (-V)
. signature check (–checksig)
. uninstall (-e)
. rebuild database (–rebuilddb)
. fix permissions (–setperms)
. set owners/groups (–setugids)
. show RC (–showrc)
