 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest


I try to manually install the dependency on glibc and end up stuck at this message....

Please help I am stuck.  I have tried updating kernel headers and clearing the yum cache but no success.

Answer : yum Install oracle-validated fails dependency on glibc

No, you should not remove any x86_64 packages as that will break your box.

The error gives you options to try to correct this issue i.e.using the  --skip-broken
or running
"You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

"
The install log file if any will likely reveal what it was checking.
