Hello, sorry for a late answer. There are two options:

1) Use foreman-maintain (recommended tool to -among others - maintain packages on Sat/Caps, since foreman-protector yum plugin prevents accidental system updates) - I havent verified this procedure, though:

subscription-manager repos --disable=rhel-7-server-satellite* --disable=rhel-7-server-satellite-capsule*
foreman-maintain packages update
subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-satellite* --disable=rhel-7-server-satellite-capsule*

2) Or use yum command directly, with Satellite/Capsule repos disabled and foreman-protector plugin disabled:

yum update --disablerepo=rhel-7-server-satellite*,rhel-7-server-satellite-capsule* --disableplugin=foreman-protector
