Someone have updated it without my knowledge, now i have to make a choice: 
-don’t reboot and wait for errors
-reboot (which im trying to avoid)

What about (g)libc package, anyone encountered similar situation ?

If you don’t want the kernel to update, just use —exclude=kernel* on yum or whatever.  Why update it if you aren’t going to use it?

Might as well be deliberate and know you’re purposefully skipping something.
