How do I go about fixing a package issue?

This is specifically about upgrading libbluray on fedora 18

  libbluray           x86_64           0.5.0-2.fc18 updates           115 k

Transaction Check Error:
   file /usr/lib64/libbluray.so.1 from install of 
libbluray-0.5.0-2.fc18.x86_64 conflicts with file from package 

I think this probably due to a packaging issue.

But more in general how does one go about resolving these kinds of issues?

I tried a number of things and thought that perhaps remoiving the 
package and re-installing the newer one might work but I became very 
nervous when it wanted to removed a bunch of important packages due to 

I thought about just upgrading to 19 with fedup but it complained about 
several other unresolved issues as well as a bunch of packages with no 
upgrades to 19.
