First, please do not top post. It makes following the message hard.
Also, please learn to trim the messages you reply to. At the very
least, remove the list signature and the signature of the person you
are replying to. You may find

Now, as to your question - how are you running yum? if you run "yum
update" as a normal user, it is not going to work. Yum has to be run
as root, because it is changing system files that a normal user does
not have read/write permission to. You can change to root by running
"su -" and providing the root password. There are also several GUIs
that will let you manage the packages on your system.

If this is not the problem you are running into, please post the
error messages you get when you run "yum update".
