I was trying to duplicate this so that I could look into it, and in LDMS 9.5 SP2 it does not allow me to set a package as dependent on itself. Can you provide me with the steps you went through to do this?
I went to the Dependent packages...
I accidentally double clicked on the Cisco Jabber 9.7 in the right pane. It disappeared.
So I browsed My Packages in the left pane to find it again. Found it. Double clicked it. It disappeared again.
Thought to myself, "weird".
Clicked Save and that's when this started.
(In my defense, I had not yet had coffee this morning.)

Thanks for the explanation, I was able to duplicate your results and will have engineering look into that. In the mean time you will have to:
1- BACKUP YOUR DATABASE.
2- Look at the Package table in the database find the PACKAGE_IDN for the problematic package.
3- Delete the entries for that PACKAGE_IDN from the Package and Package_Relationships tables in the database.
That is a very dirty way to go about it, but it will remove it and then you can rebuild the package from scratch.
Those instructions worked.
I also have another solution:
I was getting the error: 'This package is a conflict or dependency for the following packages and can't be deleted:'
Go to the Package Properties > Uninstall Association and click the 'Clear' button if you see anything populated in the 'Current:' field. Click Save.
You should now be able to delete the package.
