Updating an installed RHEL6 system using DVD ISOs and yum throws dependency errors and aborts, why?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


With a system installed with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 or earlier and attempting to update it to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 or later by way of loop-mounting the DVD ISO and using yum to perform the update - it fails if for example matahari or systemtap-grapher is installed on the system with errors such as these:
