This would appear to be a problem with the current status of your system. The usual explanation for things like this is that the target of a file/directory supplied by the package has been changed - for example marking it immutable with chattr or replacing a directory with a file of the same name (or vice versa). Check /var/lib/libvirt/images on your system for these problems and correct them and then try the update again.

You are right, /var/lib/libvirt/images was a mount point on a remote file system.
Update worked after a umount. Newer seen this before and I have used this setup
for years now.
Sorry for the false alert.
