[YOCTO #5313]

When performing an attemptonly install, we should skip an errors and
continue to install everything else.  However, there is a case where two
packages can conflict, and cause a hard failure.

This workaround, ignores this and allows the image to be constructed.
Note: Some items in the failed transaction may not get installed.

To fix this properly we need to find the issue in smart, and make it ignore
or at least attempt to resolve these kinds of conflicts.
