Very odd, root and branch, very odd indeed. I tried that first on this
machine (an athlon about a year and a half old, I believe; I can find the
hardware browser if anyone thinks that would help), forgetting the trouble
was on the other. That got 
                    =====
[[email protected] root]# yum --exclude=galeon update
Options Error: option --exclude not recognized 
                (snip)
                    =====
Then I remembered to go to the backup machine (which, unlike this one, has
not yet successfully been through an update, in case that matters) -- and
it didn't get the option error, but did still get the dependency error!

So I tried "yum update --exclude=galeon" instead, reversing the order.
This time I got "Cannot find any package matching --exclude=galeon
available to be updated. No actions to take."

Now I *am* befuddled!
