In theory, yes, but the most recent time this happened it was in a the
middle of over 100 total updates (rawhide), many of which had similar
names (it was xorg-x11-something that was causing the problem), so I
just resorted to yum --skip-broken instead of scrolling through the
massive list to un-check one of them.
