Interesting. Presumably this is not ABI compatible with the stock kernel so you can't use the ElRepo kmod packages. Otherwise it may be OK. Also be aware that oraclelinux-release-el7 installed three repo files, oracle-linux-ol7.repo, uek-ol7.repo and virt-ol7.repo and there are two enabled repos there. Are you sure you want ol7_latest enabled.
You should be able to disable repos in the .repo file rather than move it to one side.
I noticed these packages, though they do conflict with the current installed versions. I was able to update all others while skipping those specifically.
I installed the latest UEK 5.4.17 without any issues, in case anyone wanted to do the same in the future.
Ceate a temporary yum repository configuration file /etc/yum.repos.d/ol7-temp.repo with the following as the minimum required content:
Remove ol7-temp.repo and any other remaining repo files that may conflict with Oracle Linux yum server:
Install the UEK:

Attempting previous version to rule out hardware
A distribution which has not put out a new release in two or more years is marked as being Dormant in our database. The distribution may still be worked on, but has not published any new stable releases. When a dormant distribution publishes a new stable release it is then marked as being Active. A project may also be marked as dormant if it no longer plans to put out future releases, ie planned inactivity, while older releases are maintained.
The Discontinued status is reserved for projects which are no longer being developed. There is no outward activity and no roadmap for new releases. Projects which no longer have websites will also be marked as discontinued.
We often receive e-mails from projects which have been Dormant and plan future releases (or from fans of dormant projects) asking us to update the distro's status to Active. This will be done automatically when a new stable release is published.
I've attempted to contact them to relist, email was sent to a dead address.
polkit version 0.113 (or later) is vulnerable, checked current clear repos; polkit-0.112-26.el7.x86_64.rpm
We good for now I suppose. Those that install a DE in the future *may* need to use caution.
It *is* a G1 from what I can see, that command gives me "BOX 300".. something along those lines. Wasn't very specific.
A BIOS update exists for ClearBOX 300 Gen1 which brings more features to expand memory and processor options. Essentially it transforms a Gen1 box to a Gen2 box. There is no update path from Gen1/2 to Gen3. Contact support for more information.
This seems like something that could help?
I previosly used http://ftp1.clearos.com/pub/ClearBOX/ to grab a BIOS there, I *think* I just used the R100E2 ROM. May need to give the other G1toG2 update a go instead.
