Try double-clicking on the red icon. That should show you a list of
packages that are 'available'. I bet one of them is kernel-doc.
If so, the way I got round this was to manaully remove the old
one with
    rpm -e kernel-doc

then download the new RPM direct from the fedora download site and
install it by hand with rpm -i

There may be a more elegant way round this problemm, but I never found
it.  The problem is something to do with that package changing from
architecture-specific to architecture-neutal.
