YES but he should do so after a conference with the home plate umpire. The idea is to get the call right and if the base umpire saw something the home plate umpire did not see he should confer with the the plate ump to get it right.

When there are conflicting decisions regarding if a runner is safe or out which umpire is correct?

Umpires have procedures so that only one umpire makes a call on any given play. If more than one makes a call than the umps would know who was out of line and their call would be made invalid. Umps could make different calls for different reasons. One ump might call the runner safe because he beat the throw, but another ump might have seen interference. In this case, the first ump wasn't wrong, but he'd be overruled because a separate ruling was made.
