Try running

   yum clean all

and then try it again.

However, you need to careful since none of your repositories appear
to be bona fida CentOS  repositories (just by looking at the name.)

A slightly different version of python may create havoc when trying to
upgrade other packages with python dependencies.

I don't have the trailing "_3.6" on mine which makes me suspicious that
it might *not* be the correct version - but I might be wrong about that.

Also, all my packages end with ".i386" instead of "_3.6".
