 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Solution :
To overcome the issue, you need to execute “yun install php53-* -y” that will install PHP 5.3 version :

[root@centos58 ~]# yum install php53-* -y
