The filelist.xml data is needed so that file requires can be solved.
It's impossible to do file conflict detection with just the repository
metadata, as it lacks the file checksum information.

Regarding the bug report, it's probably just that dnf's do_transaction
code (in base.py) uses the last problem when throwing the exception
instead of concatenating the problems.
