Depending on its setting SELinux may have an impact.; X/KDE/Gnome
should have no impact on yum. I prefer using yum over up2date because
I don't want to be bothered with clicking through the up2date dialogs.
 I open a terminal in KDE or Gnome and let yum take care of the
updates.

If you continue having difficulties upgrading yum with yum don't beat
yourself over the head, install what you got in the cache using "rpm
-ivh *.rpm".  The important part is to get your system in working
order.  You can attend to yum at a later time.  Try apt-get or smart,
http://smartpm.org , as alternatives.
