The problem is that you have a old version of alchemist-1.0.37-8.fc12.i686 installed, there need python-2.6, so it blocks the update to python-2.7.
yum remove alchemist (as root)
then the system should be able to update.
After that your can find a more recent version of alchemist and install it, if it is something you need
