Scientific Linux > Software and applications > gThumb is broken

Several weeks ago I started receiving these messages:
Failed to check for updates with the following error message:
Failed to build transaction: gthumb-3.3.4-2.el7.x86_64 requires

I thought downgrading gThumb might solve the problem. Negative. OK, delete and re-install.

Then I got:
$ sudo yum install gthumb
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: gthumb-3.3.4-2.el7.x86_64 (epel)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Nothing happening there so I went on a bit of a google-ramble and came across this:

The last entry on that bug report says that a rebuilt gThumb has been pushed to epel stable. However, I'm still getting the same result as above.

I'd appreciate any info that would help me get gThumb installed and running again. Thanks
