Default Rolling back to updates from updates-testing

Assuming I have a package installed from updates-testing, is there any simple away (apart from erasing and reinstalling) to replace it with the equivalent package from the normal updates repository? Trying to avoid breaking dependencies.

Thanks in advance!
Best,
Christopher

yum update --distro-sync

if updates-testing is disabled, else add --disablerepo=updates-testing

Alternatively:

yum downgrade PACKAGEBASENAME

if it's just a single package.

Btw, you cannot break RPM dependencies that way unless you play with --nodeps
installation via "rpm". Yum would refuse to break RPM dependencies.

distro-sync seemed to do the trick - thanks to both of you!
