I’m going from 1.6.2 to 1.7.

I removed that php from /downloader/lib/Mage/Connect/validator.php and still get the error on upgrade?

CONNECT ERROR - package conflicts with…

What could be wrong, file perms maybe?

Hello,

Can recommend you to migrate your store from one Magento to another. I realize that it is not a decision that you asked for. But migration works much simpler and it works. I used this service http://www.shopping-cart-migration.com/supported-carts/55-magento

To allow MCM to overwrite existing files you need to edit this file:

downloader\lib\Mage\Connect\Validator.php

and remove this part:

if (file_exists($dest)) {
                $this
->addError("'{$file}' already exists");
                return 
false;
            
}

which is right at the bottom of the file

If installation fails you will need to re-edit the file as it will be replaced by the version just downloaded

Thanks for tip. Helped our upgrade
