While upgrading from BDA 4.13/4.14 to BDA 5.2, Step 2 UpdateBaseImage fails.  The Mammoth output contains errors like the following:

3. The Mammoth step "UpdateBaseImage" is trying to update the package glibc-common, but cannot do so due to a conflict between the BDA 5.2 glibc-common x86_64 RPM and an existing glibc i686 RPM.

4. On the Mammoth node, the BDA repository does not contain the glibc i686 RPM. In this example, /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdarepo/RPMS/i686 would not contain glibc-2.17-292.0.1.el7.i686.

glibc-2.17-292.0.1.el7.i686 is not one of the BDA 5.2 Mammoth packages.  This RPM is part of a custom third-party software installation.
