    ****************************************************************
    When you try to uninstall a cumulative interim Fix with IBM
    Installation Manager (IM), IM may block it in the Uninstall
    wizard. You will get an error message: "You cannot uninstall
    the PK1111 fix which is superseded by the installed package
    PK2222.". This problem also will happen in IM silent mode and
    the error will be reported. It is caused by the dependencies
    checker bundle incorrectly determining the supersede
    relationship between interim Fixes.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code was fixed in the dependencies checker bundle.
    The fix will be available in the WebSphere Application Server
    fix pack 7.0.0.17, Feature Pack for Communications Enabled
    Applications 1.0.0.11, Feature Pack for OSGi/JPA 1.0.0.5,
    Feature Pack for Modern Batch 1.0.0.3, Feature Pack for
    Service Component Architecture 1.0.0.11, and Feature Pack for
    XML 1.0.0.9.
