Unfortunately I no longer have the specific messages available, but
it was one of those ones where something didn't like the specific
versions of available dependent packages.  Whether or not it would
impact a given system would likely depend exactly on what was installed.

It's also possible that there is some left over cruft somewhere on
the system that feeds into the problem.  It's been updated regularly
since the first RHEL 6.0 came out and at time has had epel, elrepo,
and at one point rpmforge RPMs installed.

Reenabling the 3rd party repos after the update was not an issue.

Mostly the email was a heads-up with a simple solution should anyone
else run into problems.
