You need to take a closer look at what yum is trying to install.  This
message is telling you yum won't update the package because it will
break a dependency on another installed package.  I would guess that
you are either mixing repos, or one of the repos isn't internally
consistent.

I notice that you are using RPMForge, did you see the changes going on
there with RPMForge-Extras?

If the problem persists you will probably want to take it to the
RPMForge list (and provide the full yum output)
