Your system seems to be trying to mix packages from RHEL 6.0, 6.2 and 6.3. This isn't going to work very well.

My first thought is that your yum caches are stale. Try cleaning them before you install the packages again:

yum clean all

Second, make sure you have set a Red Hat release for the system:

subscription-manager release --set=6.3
yum distro-sync

If you still can't get the packages installed, contact Red Hat. You have a subscription; you may as well get your money's worth from it!

Ok so I was able to resolve the above error by bringing my release up to sync. Now sudo yum install php-mbstring throws Error: Package: php-mbstring-5.3.3-3.el6_2.6.x86_64 (rhel6-optional) Requires: php-common = 5.3.3-3.el6_2.6 Installed: php-common-5.3.3-14.el6_3.x86_64 (@rhel6-updates) php-common = 5.3.3-14.el6_3 Available: php-common-5.3.3-3.el6.x86_64 (rhel6-base) php-common = 5.3.3-3.el6 – Saurav Shah Oct 11 '12 at 7:53
Sounds like something is possibly wrong with Red Hat's repositories. Contact Red Hat for further support. – Michael Hampton Oct 11 '12 at 15:44
