Can you give an actual example?

Also, did you change your /etc/yum.conf file?  There is a setting,
exactarch, which controls whether yum will upgrade to across
architectures.  The default is exactarch=1.  It is even more strict
than x86_64/i386; it won't upgrade between glibc.i386 and glibc.i686
for exampe.
