Did you go down the package list and do "yum re-install" of all the
packages which have identical names in both? It's potentially helpful
to avoid confusion about subtly different
"foo-release-version.arch.rpm" packages from each repository, which
can happen when both repositories publish new releases as increments
of a single digit from the previous release.
