"--exclude=avalon*" will not work. avalon-logkit is already installed.
The OP has enabled a 3rd party repository. An updated package from
that repository is causing the conflict. He has several choices:

1) disable the 3rd party repository
2) exclude excalibur packages, e.g. "yum --exclude=excalibur* update"
3) wait for Fedora to update avalon-logkit and the associated .jar file.

I would use either 1 or 2.
