error: Sanity-checking final rpmdb: Didn't find package 'gstreamer1-plugin-openh264-1.16.2-2.fc33.x86_64'

This issue is present in all versions, including `rpm-ostree-2021.1-3.fc33` (see bodhi link)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run `rpm-ostree upgrade`
Actual Results:  
Overrided packages are removed. System cannot upgrade on versions less than `rpm-ostree-2021.1-3.fc33`

Expected Results:  
System upgrades smoothly

I have discovered a temporary, hacky fix:

cd Downloads
wget && wget && wget
sudo rpm-ostree usroverlay && sudo rpm -Uvh rpm-ostree-{,libs-}*.rpm
systemctl restart rpm-ostreed.service
rpm-ostree override replace libsolv-0.7.15-1.fc33.x86_64.rpm

If you are using Silverblue, you can rollback to 33.20210203.0 (Base Commit: 8776ab1b7ba55c1455c38f76ae4f050a26e6489029e91f76544e551998001667, libsolv 0.7.15-1.fc33), reboot and upgrade to apply the patch.
