+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #848127 +++

Description of problem:
when I tried to get requires for glibc I got strange error that I am trying to remove yum. This is a bit weird as I did get-requires operation and not remove.. Is it checking requires via yum remove or so? this is a bit silly, isn't it? ;-)

pkcon get-requires glibc
More than one package matches:
1. glibc-2.15-47.el7.x86_64 [installed:alpha2]
2. glibc-2.15-47.el7.i686 [alpha2]
Please choose the correct package: 1
