yum update returns kernel error


I want to install virtualbox in fedora20. I have followed the instruction here:

http://www.if-not-true-then-false.co...-red-hat-rhel/

but what I execute :
Quote:
yum update
I get the following error:

Error: Package: kmod-VirtualBox-3.16.6-200.fc20.x86_64-4.3.18-1.fc20.1.x86_64 (rpmfusion-free-updates)
Requires: kernel-uname-r = 3.16.6-200.fc20.x86_64
Installed: kernel-3.11.10-301.fc20.x86_64 (@anaconda)
kernel-uname-r = 3.11.10-301.fc20.x86_64

kernel-uname-r = 3.16.4-200.fc20.x86_64
Available: kernel-debug-3.11.10-301.fc20.x86_64 (fedora)
kernel-uname-r = 3.11.10-301.fc20.x86_64+debug
Available: kernel-debug-3.16.4-200.fc20.x86_64 (updates)
kernel-uname-r = 3.16.4-200.fc20.x86_64+debug
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

How can I solve this problem with the kernel without following the above suggestions?

Repeat the steps. I am sure that you missed one of the step.

At what stage are you running into that error?
The "yum update" is one of the first steps, but your output seems to imply you have some "kmod-VirtualBox-3.16.6-200" package from rpmfusion already installed that's angry about its dependencies?

What, exactly, have you done on this system? How have you manipulated the yum repos? What VirtualBox-related have you already installed? It looks like you've already installed something VBox-related from rpmfusion...what is it?

Installing VirtualBox is easy, just update your system, install the VirtualBox repo, and install VirtualBox. That is unless you've corrupted things elsewhere.

to add can you also include the output of this
Code:
su -
yum repolist all
this will help us figure things out
