Linux: RHEL issue with duplicate repositories

I ran into an issue with one of our servers that dealt with duplicate repositories when running “yum check-update”
Update notice FEDORA-EPEL-2018-20225d1828 (from epel) is broken, or a bad duplicate, skipping.

My fix was to check in /etc/yum.repo
I found that one of my co workers had setup two other .repo files that we conflicting with the one created when registering the Red Hat server with Satellite.
I did the following:

  1. renamed the additional repositories to a .old extension
  2. yum clean all
  3. yum check-update
