yum update worked for me but you may be misled about some packages
existing in Beta 2 refresh if you do it that way; a number of perl
modules were available in Beta 2 but have been dropped in the Beta 2
refresh. And some modules aren't available for all architectures (e.g.
the list of available packages for ppc64 and s390x is shorter than the
list for i386 and x86_64).
