Application deployment error - rule is in conflict with other rules

I have 2 applications, ABC version 1.0, this has been deployed to a couple collections, 1 test\QA collection(manually created), and the main deployment collection(AD based Query rule), it was set to required.  I now want to deploy ABC version 2.0.1, so it upgrades the previous version.  It has 2 deployments, one is an upgrade for 1.0, the other is for installs that have never had version 1.0.  I setup supersedence, selected 2.0.1 to supersede 1.0, did not check the uninstall, as the installer for the 2.0.1 version will control that. 

However when I deploy, to the Test\QA collection, I get the error message Rule is in conflict with other rules.  Is it because the computes in the Test\QA collection are also in the main deployment collection?  The original deployment for 1.0 is still active, is it necessary for me to cancel that deployment?

Yes, you must either move the computer to a Collection so that it is not targeted by the installation of version 1.0 or delete that Deployment for it to Work,

I removed the clients from the Main collection.  I'm still getting the conflicts, I ran a report to see all application deployments to one of the computers in the QA collection; there is only one deployment for this software, and it is abc 2.0.1.  I did remember that I had a 3rd application, that was previously deployed, that had the application ABC 1.0 as a dependence, so I added 2.0.1, and redeployed.  That didn't help, so I deleted the dependence entirely from the 3rd applicaion, and redeployed abc 2.0.1, still getting the same error.  When I go into Deployment Monitoring for the abc 2.0.1 application, and click on the details of one of the failed asset details, the page is blank under the Conflicts tab.
