Thanks ;-)

It's too bad yum isn't able to also remove packages from the updates-to-be-applied list once it appears dependencies concerning such a package are unresolvable.

Wouldn't you agree such feature in yum may solve the issue at hand here?


No. It would be a bad feature to ignore unresolvable updates in general since they might very well be critical security features. So the users need to be aware of conflicts and make the choices manually if they want to ignore any updates. Exposing a method to do so in tools like Pup would be a good idea however and there are already feature requests to do the same.
