You could use --skip-broken to install package skipping the dependencies. This could cause issues though and you should use it with care. Else install those manually.
Where are you getting the error though? What package causes the issue?

Along with above solutions mentioned by other members, you can list the dependencies using

yum deplist packagename
and then install
