Looks like something didn't install cleanly a few updates ago.

I would suggest using package-cleanup to fix it:

# package-cleanup --cleandupes

Once that's done, re-run yum update and see if that clears the problem.
If not, we may have to resort to more aggressive tactics. The good news
is this definitely can be fixed (voice of personal experience).

Cheers,

Chris
