I am sorry, the update is totally broken (IMHO because redhat-release is not versioned):

[root@tux ~]# yum update epel-release

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
[root@tux ~]# 
[root@tux ~]# rpm -qa | grep redhat-release

[root@tux ~]# rpm -q --provides redhat-release-server-6Server-

Bodhi is disabling automatic push to stable due to negative karma. The maintainer may push manually if they determine that the issue is not severe.

Please note that there is also redhat-release-workstation, thus redhat-release-server is not suitable itself as base for a requirement/conflict.
