Summary0014275: yum incorrectly considers i386 packages to be updates to x86_64 packages
DescriptionAs of this morning, yum updates fail due to incompatible versions of notepadqq being released into the repositories. The issue is that I have an x86_64 package, and running yum update considers an i386 package with a higher version number to be a valid update.

Steps To ReproduceSteps to Reproduce:
sudo yum update notepadqq.x86_64

Expected Results:
yum update succeeds

Actual Results:
---> Package notepadqq.x86_64 0:0.46.1-0.el7.centos will be updated
---> Package notepadqq.i386 0:0.46.1-1.fc20 will be an update
[cut for brevity]
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: notepadqq-0.46.1-1.fc20.i386 (FedoraPeople-sea)
Error: Package: notepadqq-0.46.1-1.fc20.i386 (FedoraPeople-sea)
Additional InformationWhy is a package that is installed as the x86_64 version trying to 'update' to an i386 version?

I could understand this on an initial install, but I already had an x86_64 package installed and so a package for a different platform is definitely not a valid upgrade.

I was able to get around this by adding exclude=*.i386 to my yum.conf but this should not be necessary at all.

Things like this should work out of the box without requiring the user to tweak their systems because a sloppy release by a single developer breaks their entire system yum workflow.
TagsNo tags attached.

You are trying to update a CentOS-Package with one from fc20. That's not how it works, and you should stick to the version provided by CentOS. Otherwise you are on your own - thus closing this ticket.
