    ****************************************************************
    When uninstalling the fixpack to perform update,
    checkAparDependency bundle checks whether the offering is
    superseded by another offering. If fixpack is superseded by an
    iFix, skip the supersede check.
    

Problem conclusion

  • To allow interim fixes to be applicable to multiple fixpacks,
    skip the supersede check for fixpacks that are superseded by the
    interim fix.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.19, 9.0.5.6. For more information, see 'Recommended Update
    for WebSphere Application Server':
