    I have this error:

    Code:
    Error: Package: glibc-2.17-196.el7.i686 (@base)
               Requires: glibc-common = 2.17-196.el7
               Removing: glibc-common-2.17-196.el7.x86_64 (@base)
                   glibc-common = 2.17-196.el7
               Updated By: glibc-common-2.17-196.el7_4.2.x86_64 (updates)
                   glibc-common = 2.17-196.el7_4.2
     You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
     You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
    
    please help

    it worked, However, this is not due to the os first has 32 before centmin, as it is an old setup like a few months ago, and this is the first time to notice that, any other possibilities?

    You can check history for for a yum package from moment it was installed via
    Code (Text):
    yum history info glibc
    

    copy and paste output of command to pastebin.com or gist.github.com and provide a link to it or just try and find when i686 version was installed
