Description of problem:
On one of our x86_64 machines I needed gnome-vfs2.i386, so I ran
up2date --arch=i386 -u gnome-vfs2
with the result
Invalid group id server-cfg

Well, that's all very nice, but it was the i386 version I needed... So I try the same line again and this time I get the correct package.

up2date --arch=i386 -u gnome-vfs2

The following packages were added to your selection to satisfy dependencies:
 
Name                                    Version        Release
--------------------------------------------------------------
libbonobo                               2.2.3          1

Worth noting might be that there already was an older version of gnome-vfs2.x86_64 installed on this machine but no gnome-vfs2.i386





Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Comment 4 Bret McMillan 2006-04-25 16:57:53 EDT
WORKSFORME as of 4.4.67

--arch underwent changes in 4u3/3u7, it also could have been your use of -u. 
From the man page:

       -u, --update
              Completely  update  the system.  All relevant packages
              will be downloaded (and  possibly  installed,  if  you
              have configured Update Agent to do so).
