Suspicious non-standard plugin. Have you tried disabling that one?

As you can see, an update for rpm-libs for both architectures is seen.
In the context of that, your original error message doesn't make sense
as rpm-libs would have been updated to 4.4.22-2.fc7 requiring
rpm- Yum would update both and detect broken deps during
the transaction test, but normally would never keep the old fc6
