I had a similar problem, but with different packages, again for i586 and
x86_64. The i586 ones were installed for nswrapper, so I can use the
32-bit Adobe Flash plugin. All were language packs and I guess that the
architecture is irrelevant so the identical files appear in both
packages. Package-updater and yum both object to updating one without
the other but one has to go first...

I got round the problem by doing "yum update --tolerant". No problems
evident so far.
