Doesn't "yum update" mean update the packages I have installed? I do not have 
i386 packages installed. No packages selected REQUIRES 32 bit only packages. 
Typing "yum update NetworkManager" selected only x64_64 packages even though 
I didn't specify an architecture. Why can't "yum update" follow the same 
behavior? Why does the obsolete cause it to decide to pull in 32 bit 
packages? If I do the delete, "yum update" changes behavior and only selects 
64 bit packages. Something is wrong here.

I also have the exactarch=1. If that doesn't mean x86_64, what does it mean?
