 As it says, you already have a version of the package instaleld with the problem. So yum doesn't see it as a new problem (but rpm does).
 You need to install something which provides chkfontpath, or remove/reinstall msttcorefonts (and then when installing it yum will require something which provides chkfontpath).

 You can also do: --setop=recheck_installed_requires=True ... if your version of yum has that.
