This is the result i get while upgrading

Description of problem: In the recent redhat 7.5 release qt5 gets updated to 5.9.2 while other packages in the epel such as qt5-qtwebkit and qt5-qtdeclarative are at the version 5.6.2. Doing a "sudo yum update" breaks existing applications depending on qt5-qtwebkit and thus breaking the update.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
the current version (in 7.5 release) of qt5-qtbase package is 5.9.2, while the epel still holds the above-mentioned packages at version 5.6.2.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install qt5-qtwebkit before update.
2. sudo yum update
3. qt5-qtwebkit is broken as qt5-qtbase gets updated to higher version.

Actual results:
The system can not upgrade not without compromising the application dependent 

Expected results:
qt5-qtwebkit should have been included with redhat repos and shoud have been in sync with qt5-qtbase.

We cannot include qtwebkit mainly because of security reasons. Another solution to this would be to update qt5-qtwebkit in epel.
