Description of problem:
Firefox update from firefox-60.0-0.2.el7.x86_64 to firefox-60.1.0-4.el7_5.x86_64 fails due to error while unpacking rpm package, particularly on file /usr/lib64/firefox/browser/defaults/preferences: cpio: rename.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have firefox-60.0-0.2.el7.x86_64 (or maybe some other version < 60.1.0-4) installed
2. update it with yum to firefox-60.1.0-4.el7_5.x86_64

Actual results:
Update fails with errors:
Error unpacking rpm package firefox-60.1.0-4.el7_5.x86_64
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/lib64/firefox/browser/defaults/preferences: cpio: rename

error: firefox-60.1.0-4.el7_5.x86_64: install failed
error: firefox-60.0-0.2.el7.x86_64: erase skipped
firefox-60.0-0.2.el7.x86_64 was supposed to be removed but is not!

Expected results:
smooth update to firefox-60.1.0-4.el7_5.x86_64

Closing as we never released ESR60.0 and customer is actually doing update from ESR52.8 to ESR60.1 and in fact even there was a bz related to cpio: rename customer can't trigger it.
