I had this problem after upgrading from fc6. I had to manually remove the old fc6 glibc
packages using something like
yum remove glibc-2.5-10.fc6
after doing yum list | grep glibc to find out their actual names.
I could then do a yum update glibc and it worked.
I was then able to correctly update my whole system.
