from the errors, you are also using atrpms in addition to rf and epel.

that's quite a mix, you can't just enable them all and expect things to 
work out.

I recommend you choose one repo as your main 3rd party, and resort to 
the other repos only for specific packages (eg all xfce related packages 
from epel like you say). Use priorities and includepkgs/excludepkgs to 
enforce that choice.
