Uninstalling Package

I am having issues with yum update, saying that I don't have a dependency installed but then when I go to the site with the "bug fix" it says that I already have the system-printer-config GUI installed (which is the missing dependency)

How do I uninstall this package?then I can attempt to reinstall it
