Yum / Dnf fails after selecting wrong architecture dependencies

Solution Verified - Updated -


Yum/Dnf tries to install package in wrong architecture as a dependency and fails when installing a package.

This issue occurs when a package of a chosen architecture is selected for installation and it has dependencies for an old version of an already installed package.
This can be caused by a content view in satellite that contains older packages than ones used in a RHEL master for deploying Operating Systems.
