Issue Description
When the SMC is being installed, the message "Installation path under the presence of the same name 'smc20db' database file, delete or additional!" is displayed, which indicates a database file conflict. The installation is then stopped.
Handling Process
Step 1 Perform either of the following:
 If the later SMC version does not require database recovery
Perform Step 2 and Step 3.
 If the later SMC version requires database recovery
1. Back up the current database. For details, see Backing Up the Database.

Root Cause
The database file of the earlier version is not deleted. When the SMC is updated, a new database file conflicts with the existing file, and the installation stops.
