Since Thunderbird was updated from 10.0 to 17.0 in RHEL6, yum generates a conflict because thunderbird-lightning in EPEL 6 hasn't been updated to match.
The versions on the system are:
# rpm -qa | grep -i thunderbird
and what is available is:
# yum list available thunderbird
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit, rhnplugin
thunderbird.x86_64 17.0.3-1.el6_3 rhel-x86_64-workstation-6
A snip of the error produced by yum update :
Error: Package: thunderbird-lightning-1.2.3-1.el6.x86_64 (@epel)
Requires: thunderbird < 11.0
Removing: thunderbird-10.0.12-3.el6_3.x86_64 (@rhel-x86_64-workstation-6)
thunderbird = 10.0.12-3.el6_3
Updated By: thunderbird-17.0.3-1.el6_3.x86_64 (rhel-x86_64-workstation-6)
thunderbird = 17.0.3-1.el6_3
