I note two things.  First every package that's being updated is either 
.i686 or .noarch but the error message complains about a file not being 
equal to an .x86_64 file.  If your system's not 64 bit, you shouldn't be 
needing any .x86_64  programs/libs installed.  Second, the first of the 
two files in the error message is a newer version than the other, which 
is a tad odd.
