that's a massive jumble of information. To make this not quite so
intensive, please consider filtering rpm -qa through sort. command
would look like this

rpm -qa | sort > ~/rpmlist

that puts things in a much nicer order. Basically from the sounds of
things you've got multiple versions of multiple packages installed.
It's not a different problem, just on a much larger scale. Johnny
Hughes linked to a bug report and an issue covered in release notes
you should consider reading, and also the information in the thread
"Yum update crashed, now I have lots of missing deps". I suspect
karanbir is referring to the rpmmacros text I gave you, so don't go
hunting around too much for that. you already have it.

Mostly it sounds like you've got a fair amount of rpm commands in your
future for each of the duplicate packages.
