It would seem that all the other available updates should be installed. Is there a reason why this doesn't happen? Enhancement request?

      I posted a workaround for this mess in this list with the subject 
"Updated NetworkManager for x86_64.".  In addition, there's a package 
called yum-skip-broken that might handle the case where some packages 
can't be installed, although I haven't played with it yet.

      If you have any questions, call or write.  Calling is faster.
