Packages v. 6 obsolete packages v. 5 when stored in an internal RPM repository

In some cases, customers may need to store NoMachine packages in their own repository. If nomachine-workstation and nomachine-terminal-server-node are all stored together in a RPM repository, when upgrading the installation of nomachine-workstation v.5, yum shows that nomachine-terminal-server-node obsoletes this package.

Obsoletes: nomachine-workstation < 6
