Same thing if I just narrow the install down to 'dpkg'.
man-pages-it was already installed on my system automatically (this is a brand-new Fedora 20 installation), so I assume it's a default package. Thus, I'm blaming this one on dpkg.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ensure that man-pages-it is installed
2. try "sudo yum install dpkg"
- installation fails with conflict
- successful installation
Easy workaround: sudo yum remove man-pages-it. No harm there unless you need to read man pages in Italian!
Hi, Thanks for your report , I will check that ASAP, which means this week ...
new dpkg version (1.16.12) brings some man pages for locale it ,
man-pages-it also have dpkg man pages 
I think dpkg is the best man pages because is the source and seems more updated, by dates wrote on files .
I check and man pages are not equal , but are similar ...
Could you remove the conflict files  for F19+ ?
repoquery --enablerepo=updates-testing -l dpkg | grep /it
rpm -ql man-pages-it | grep dpkg
man-pages-it-3.15-3.fc20 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 20.
Hi, thanks, we also need this applied on F19 ,
repoquery --enablerepo=updates-testing dpkg
Ah, OK, doing it for f19 as well ...
man-pages-it-3.15-2.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 20 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing man-pages-it-3.15-3.fc20'
as soon as you are able to.

Looks good! I removed lxc* and dpkg (had already removed man-pages-it as a workaround). Installed man-pages-it. Then installed lxc and lxc-templates, which dragged in dpkg as a dependency. It all worked perfectly.
