That can happen with the SCL repo ... in cases where you are getting
something you don't want from SCL, exclude it via the CentOS-SCL.repo
file in /etc/yum.repo.d/

A line that says:


should take care of that problem.

If you are not using any SCLs, then you can disable the repo ... IF you
want to use both nodejs's and EPEL's does not work with the RHEL nodejs
too, then they need to fix it as you should be able to install and use both.
