I already tried that with no luck.  I even did a 
yum update up2date
up2date -u
and it complains that it needs the same packages but that they are
already installed...

It looks like I have duplicates, so maybe an rpm -q to find the
versions and rpm -e to remove one will fix things so the rest of
the updates will work.  Now how do I tell if there are any other
duplicates besides the ones that happened to be noticed by the
dependency checks?
