If you are running the kernel, just remove the 
kernel.  Then your update won't try to update the nvidia drivers for that kernel.

The kmod-nvidia stuff seems to get confused if:

You're running one kernel
A new kernel is installed without updating the nvidia drivers
Another new kernel is installed
