ATM, the mechanism for -debuginfo upgrades is known deficient
for several years.
A better model for deciding when to upgrade/erase -debuginfo
packages is described here:
and is already implemented (but not for the RPM you are using).
There's also the minor issue of how to handle package renaming
wrto -debuginfo, most recently discussed here:
Again: not implemented in the RPM you are using.
There's a further issue of how to distribute -debuginfo
packages efficiently, but that cannot even be asked until
the model for deciding when/how to upgrade/erase -debuginfo
packages is improved.
