could you include the /etc/yum/repos.d file that you added from adobe?

I installed F7 from the DVD image, and receive the same results attempting to
run a normal upgrade.
sudo yum upgrade

  Adobe now has its own yum repo for installing the flash-plugin.  Here is the
adobe-release RPM, which contains an adobe-linux.repo file and a GPG key:


and here are the contents of adobe-linux.repo:

name=Adobe Systems Incorporated

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-06-18 17:11:12 EDT
This is Adobe's fault as they're not providing an x86_64 repo, but on x86_64
$basearch expands out to x86_64.

See http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml vs
