@Shaik_SharkFish You're running into that message because it looks like you have McAfee VirusScan for Linux (VSEL) installed, which is dependent upon the McAfee Agent for receiving its content updates. 

To avoid the message, you can first uninstall VSEL.

If you're unwilling/do not want to uninstall VSEL, then I would recommend you either force install a newer version of MA over the exisiting, or you can attempt forced removal of MA. For more assistance with the latter, I would recommend you reach out to the ePO/McAfee Agent forums for best assistance.
