I see now,

The OMSA repository has libsmbios 2.2.19. Both i386 and x86_64. This is because OMSA is 32-bit only and there is also some natively compiled stuff that uses libsmbios.

The software/community repo has the latest libsmbios 2.2.21, but only in the native arch. So, only x86_64 for x86_64 systems, as one would expect.

For now, if you don't need 2.2.21, or something that is only in the community repo, I would remove the community repo from your configuration and go with the official OMSA repo only.
