Hello,

We have a local Linux Dell OMSA Repository and are upgrading from 6.5 to 6.5.1.
With the Dell M610 we see an issue with the new 6.5.1 repository, during the 'yum install $(bootstrap_firmware)',
we don't see the new iDRAC 3.21 version, it says 3.20 version is the latest;

Package matching 2:iDRAC_componentid_15051_for_system_ven_0x1028_dev_0x0287-a00-1.noarch already installed. Checking for update.
No package dell_dup_componentid_15051 available.


Also with the update_firmware command the new iDRAC version is not available;
Checking iDRAC - 3.20
        Available: dell_dup_componentid_15051 - 3.20
        Did not find a newer package to install that meets all installation checks.


When I check the differences between the rpm's of 6.5 and 6.5.1, I see that that rpm version of 6.5.1 is lower then the one in 6.5;
OMSA 6.5        iDRAC 3.20      rpm version a01
OMSA 6.5.1      iDRAC 3.21      rpm version a00

How can we fix this in the OMSA 6.5.1 repository?
