Default yum won't remove a package that it lists as present

Why won't yum remove the older qt.x86_64? See below:-

home# yum list qt
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Installed Packages
qt.x86_64 1:3.3.8-4.fc7 installed
qt.x86_64 1:3.3.8-7.fc7 installed
Available Packages
qt.i386 1:3.3.8-7.fc7 updates
home# yum remove qt-3.3.8-4.x86_64
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Remove Process
No Match for argument: qt-3.3.8-4.x86_64
No Packages marked for removal

Because this is a 'duplicate package' listed in the rpmdb.

Yum install yum-utils

package-cleanup -d will show the duplicate listing(s) could be more

package-cleanup --cleandupes will fix it.

package-cleanup by itself will display the switches.

Excellent, thank you.

Previously I had done a straightforward remove of an old/duplicate
package but a tool to automate the process is very welcome.

ou might have to clean the yum cache and rebuild the rpm database.

For example, what does:]
rpm -qa |grep qt
return?
