We use Katello/Satellite 6 to manage our repos/pkgs and subscribe our servers to it. In the Katello Web UI it says that
glibc-common-2.12-1.212.el6.x86_64 is an applicable update on the system, I'll then click to update and it'll say successful.. however nothing happens and Katello still shows me that it's an applicable update.
If I ssh to the server itself and try and do a
yum install glibc-2.12-1.212.el6.x86_64 it says no package found. This is on a CentOS 6.10 box.
We have some other packages such as nscd which rely on the latest glibc as a dependency as well so I'm just super curious why this is happening.

company_repos_centos6_os and base repos definitely have glibc-2.12-1.212.el6.x86_64 in there.
As requested in the comments, my
/etc/yum.conf contains a repo that has
exclude=glibc-* kernel-* and actually doing a
yum update doesn't work.
