      Description

      Hi,
      yum update doesn't work for  PS-57 -> PS-80 updates.
      At the same time apt-get upgrade works well.
      So it is better to fix this behavior as we are complicating things for end-user(previously we had both versions in the same repo and we couldn't do such updates otherwise user could brake their system by yum/apt upgrade command and get latest 5.7 instead of 5.6)
      Also such update way remove and install can cause additional issues for user. for example on deb based system he could execute dpkg --purge instead of apt-remove and accidentally select option to remove /var/lib/mysql.
