Managed to get past this error by running

followed by

yum install libgcrypt

Thanks, I did try to find duplicates but , package-cleanup --cleandupes found none. as far as I can tell there is only one version of libgcrypt install on my box

here is the command output (I am on Fedora 20) : rpm -qa | grep libgcrypt

libgcrypt-1.5.3-2.fc21.x86_64

I have tried to install playonlinux, and pipelight-plugin in both cases received the error below. I tried

yum update
and
yum reinstall *

With no effect. anything else I can try to fix this ?

the error message:

Error:  Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root
       cause is something else and multilib version checking is just
       pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:

         1. You have an upgrade for libgcrypt which is missing some
            dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to
            solve this by installing an older version of libgcrypt of the
            different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture
            yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package
            requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with
            --exclude libgcrypt.otherarch ... this should give you an error
            message showing the root cause of the problem.

         2. You have multiple architectures of libgcrypt installed, but
            yum can only see an upgrade for one of those architectures.
            If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you
            can remove the one with the missing update and everything
            will work.

         3. You have duplicate versions of libgcrypt installed already.
            You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.

       ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove
       this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to
       do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing
       much more problems).
