Unhappy x86_64 fc8 package update conflicts

I am updating an fc8 system that I have not used for a while. Software updater tells me that there are many updates needed (127 security). When I run the update (9/1/08), I get many errors, like:

file /usr/lib/libnm-util.so.0.0.0 from install of NetworkManager-glib-0.7.0-0.6.
9.svn3675.fc8.i386 conflicts with file from package NetworkManager-0.7.0-0.6.7.s
vn3370.fc8.i386
file /usr/include/python2.5/pyconfig.h from install of python-devel-2.5.1-26.fc8
.2.x86_64 conflicts with file from package python-devel-2.5.1-15.fc8.i386
file /usr/bin/gtk-builder-convert from install of gtk2-devel-2.12.8-2.fc8.x86_64
conflicts with file from package gtk2-devel-2.12.5-1.fc8.i386
file /usr/include/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf/gdk-pixbuf-features.h from install of gtk2-
devel-2.12.8-2.fc8.x86_64 conflicts with file from package gtk2-devel-2.12.5-1.f
c8.i386
....

If I run Software updater again, it pulls up a list of updates that looks the same as the previous list, so it looks as if nothing is updated.

I do not need to develop i386 apps on this machine. I have edited yum.conf to "exclude *-devel.i386". But maybe that is not the correct string. Maybe yum is not used.

Question 1: What do I need to do to get the x86_64 updates installed?
Question 2: Does software updater use yum?
Question 3: Where is the Software updater log file?

Thanks. Here's what happened:
# yum clean all
# yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing --exclude=*.i386
Listed packages to be updated; downloaded 197 packages:
...
(197/197): codeina-0.10.1 100% |=========================| 117 kB 00:01

ERROR with rpm_check_debug vs depsolve:

[root@localhost ~]# yum list python
Installed Packages
python.x86_64 2.5.1-15.fc8 installed
Available Packages
python.x86_64 2.5.1-26.fc8.2 updates

I can update individual packages from the local cache, e.g.,
[root@localhost ~]# yum localinstall /var/cache/yum/updates/packages/ypbind-1.20.4-4.fc8.x86_64.rpm ypbind

But the mass update does not proceed.

Any suggestions?

I think I did not reply to your suggestions. Apologies; it worked for me. I have had a working fc8 for a long time now. Back on the forum because I have problems with going to fc10!
