    When trying to do a System update I get error. I'm very new to this and not sure what to do.

    This is my system output:
    /etc/redhat-release:CentOS release 6.4 (Final)
    Server version: Apache/2.2.27 (Unix)
    Server built:   Apr  7 2014 12:49:50
    Cpanel::Easy::Apache v3.24.15 rev9999
    PHP 5.4.27 (cli) (built: Apr  7 2014 12:59:43)
    Copyright (c) 1997-2014 The PHP Group
    Zend Engine v2.4.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2014 Zend Technologies
    mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.50, for Linux (x86_64) using readline 5.1
    The error I get is this:

    Error:  Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root
           cause is something else and multilib version checking is just
           pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:
             1. You have an upgrade for bash which is missing some
                dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to
                solve this by installing an older version of bash of the
                different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture
                yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package
                requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with
                --exclude bash.otherarch ... this should give you an error
                message showing the root cause of the problem.
             2. You have multiple architectures of bash installed, but
                yum can only see an upgrade for one of those arcitectures.
                If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you
                can remove the one with the missing update and everything
                will work.
             3. You have duplicate versions of bash installed already.
                You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.
  can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove
           this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to
           do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing
           much more problems).
           Protected multilib versions: bash-4.1.2-29.el6.x86_64 != bash-4.1.2-15.el6_5.2.i686

    Any help or point in the right direction would be very much appriciated as I said earler, I'm very new to all this.
