What do you get if you run

  rpm --query --whatprovides 'mono(gtk-sharp)'

and

  repoquery --whatprovides 'mono(gtk-sharp)'

?

In case you don't have repoquery yet, you can find it in the "yum-utils"
package.

There has been a gtk-shark2 update recently, and it certainly provides
these four things which are complained about.

"sysinfo" is not found in the Fedora package collection, however.
I wonder whether that might be of importance. If you "rpm -e sysinfo" it
and then try yum update again, any change?

Still you could choose to go there (and add an exception for the
certificate). ;)

If it prints a list of what packages it will remove, it won't silently
remove itself.

What makes "yum remove ..." dangerous is that other dependency chains
are much longer and would lead to removing many more packages. Paying
close attention to the printed list and the y/n safety check is
very important.
