Question yum cannot resolve dependencies to update

I have been using yum successfully for months on Fedora Core 2. Now I cannot update because
"Package commons-modeler needs, this is not available"
I have always been able to find the rpm, install and move on. Not this time. When I try to install the rpm containing the lib file (mxj4) it says it is already installed.
I have used exclude command before but when I try that it comes back just like it ignored the exclude.
I used # yum --exclude=commons-modeler update
I used #yum --exclude=mxj4 update
Do I have an error in the way I used the comand?
How can I get the other updates?
Thank you for any help you can offer.

I removed commons-modeler with yum then updated successfully.
