Now that's a better explanation esecailly since I have encountered.
694 packages excluded due to repository priority protections
I decided to check the priority setting on a number of my servers and as it turns out I did have CentOS repos assigned a priorty=1
The " xxx packages excluded due to repository priority protections" still occurs and I believe rightfully so.
Regardless, I think the right way is still as you have suggested.

Someone else just had this problem and it turned out that they had EPEL installed and had given it a "priority=10" in the .repo file but had not assigned any priorities to anything else which meant that all other repos, including base and updates, were given priority=99. That meant that EPEL was more important than base/updates so the lz4 packages in EPEL were preferred over the new ones in base/updates.
Solution: add priority=1 to both [base] and [updates] in CentOS-Base.repo and maybe to [extras] too.
Thanks you so much! Commenting out the priority 10 fixed my issue
The Perfect Server CentOS 7.4 tutorial said to put 10 and did not mention other things
