I ran into this as well. The way I worked around it was to NOT update
the kernel directly. Then the nVidia update will pull the kernel update
as a dependency.

Note that you will then need to go back and also update kernel-devel.
The nVidia dependency fails to pull that part along.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,

Chris
