#StackBounty: #centos #yum exclude i686 packages in yum.conf

Bounty: 100

I’m trying to exclude *.i686 packages from installing when I try to install the x86_64 version of libcrypto.so.10.

If I put any of the following (one at a time) into my /etc/yum.conf under [main]:

exclude=*.i386 *.i686

And I try to install the package it says that it isn’t there:

sudo yum install libcrypto.so.10
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, rhnplugin, tsflags, versionlock
This system is receiving updates from RHN Classic or Red Hat Satellite.
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
No package libcrypto.so.10 available.
Error: Nothing to do

However if I remove any of those settings it tries to install both i686 and the x86_64 version of libcrypto.so.10. I am using Centos version: CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core)

How can I exclude *.i686 packages in the /etc/yum.conf file?
