The rpm you have installed provides "dell_dup_componentid_20137/system(ven_0x1028_dev_0x0235)" however the output of bootstrap_firmware is "dell_dup_componentid_20137/system(ven_0x1028_dev_0x0236)" A "yum install $(bootstrap_firmware)" should have pulled in the correct one.

To correct you can do:

rpm -e iDRAC6_componentid_20137_for_system_ven_0x1028_dev_0x0235-a02-1
yum install dell_dup_componentid_20137/system(ven_0x1028_dev_0x0236)

If the yum install still pulls in the 0x235 one, then there might be something wrong with the repo.
