Hi, i find the answer, command:

rpm -Uvh splunk-6.5.3.xxx.rpm --relocate /opt=/home

/opt director is default install path, /home is you change path

To upgrade Splunk, you never need to uninstall it and reinstall it again. That's why it´s called an upgrade 😉

First, I would check the list of installed packages.

If you're running Ubuntu 14:
apt list --installed

For older versions:
dpkg --get-selections | grep

If you are running other systems, just try to locate the right commands.

I would also try to make sure that you don´t have any other splunk instances in that machine.
