This issue can be taken care of by installing yum-plugin-elrepo from ELRepo.


Thank you for your help.  I actually had already installed yum-plugin-elrepo, and that was
apparently part of the problem.   When I do an update with this repo active kmod-nvidia-
430.40-2.el7_7.elrepo.x86_64.rpm is the rpm that is set to be installed which does not work
because I an running Centos 7.6.   When I installed kmod-nvidia-430.40-
1.el7_7.elrepo.x86_64.rpm instead of doing an update everything worked perfectly. 

Looks like the elrep repsitory may have a problem with this update.
