Try this:
1) Remove the foomatic rpm
2) Run the 'yum update' cmd
3) After the update is complete, run 'yum install foomatic'

I had the same problem. Thanks for the tip.

Any idea why Yum couldn't resolve this on its own?

Read the message more carefully!!! "... conflicts with ... < 3.0.2-33.3"
I faced with this problem and had a better idea: remove any old versions of foomatic!
1) rpm -qa | grep foomatic ---- find all versions of the package installed in your system:

2) rpm -e foomatic-3.0.2-33.2
After this uninstall yum goes work well.

Thanks a lot for this posting. I just used it to resolve this issue and a similar one. It's nice to have a place to go for a n00b like me. :)

What i wound up doing was following ilusha's advice. I removed the older package foomatic-3.0.2-33.2 and that cleared it up. There was also some other package that needed to be removed (forgot which one) and wound up having to remove the -gui that it was dependent on before i was successful.

Once again, thanks for the EASY and CLEAR advice!
