Not a yum problem, there is some old installed ruby packages there require some other ruby stuff, there is been updated to a new version and no longer fulfill the requirements of the old installed ruby package.
I simpler words the is no upgrade path for the installed ruby packages ruby-rdoc- & rubygem-rake-doc-
maybe some ruby packages has not been rebuild or has not been pushed to the fedora  repositories yet.

1. wait a couple of days and try to see if it goes away.
2. remove the old ruby packages (ruby-rdoc- & rubygem-rake-doc- if possible, they can be leftover from an older fedora release (.fc16)
3. If that don't work, make a bugzilla repport agaist the ruby-rdoc or rubygem-rake-doc package, there  can be problems with the packages.
