You have both the i686 and x86_64 versions of glibc installed. That
error means that the repo you are trying to update from has a different
version of i686 glibc and x86_64 glibc … or you are trying to upgrade
one (the x86_64 version) and not the other (the i686 version).
Since multilib installs share some files (all the Documentation, etc.),
that means you must install the same version of each arch if you install
both i686 and x86_64 packages.
