redhet update using yum not seeing rpm's on repo

I am trying to update a server running RHEL 6.8 (x86_64) to 6.9. I am running against a local repo I configured using reposync

when I run yum update I get many errors at the end. For example

Error: Package: cloog-ppl-0.15.7-1.2.el6.x86_64
Removing: gmp.4.3.1-10.el6.x86_64 (@localrepo)
Updated By: gmp.4.3.1-12.el6.i686 (localrepo)
Not Found
Available: gmp.4.3.1-7.el6.x86_64 (localrepo)

the file gmp.4.3.1-12.el6.i686 is on the repo and accessible (same permissions as gmp.4.3.1-7.el6.x86_64) so I am not sure why yum update can't find what it needs.

running yum update gmp.i686 generates similar errors, all having problems finding i686 files on the repo server, that exist.

I have re-run createrepo on the repo server and have deleted yum cache and run yum clean all on the target server.

Any ideas where things went wrong?

These servers sit on an air-gapped, isolated network so sharing info from there to here is not an easy task.

yum update will not install gpm i686 for no reason (i.e. if no package in rpm db depends on it - someone please correct me if this is wrong).

What you can try is manually install the package and see how it goes.

yum install gmp.i686


i686, repo, update, yum
