fedora-release-2.91-4 is i386
fedora-release-3-rawhide is noarch
in arch comparison on 32bit systems i386 looks "better" than noarch
just like "i686" looks better than "i386" when multiple arches for a
package are available.
On top of that yum has a setting called "exactarch" in the config
file(s) which can be set to only update packages if its the same arch
as the current package.. to avoid a category of packaging problems
that have bitten people in the past. During the test phase this time
fedora-release became noarch.
So.... find the exactarch=1 line in your yum conf(s) and set it off with =0
and yo should get the fedora-release package updated.
