Quite strange. How did you apply those updates? 
PackageKit? yum? With what command?

Is there anything non standard in your /etc/yum.conf ?
Can you attach it, or the /etc/yum.conf.rpmsave file?

You can try (if you have a i386 install): 

rpm -ivh
http://mirrors.tummy.com/pub/fedora.redhat.com/fedora/linux/updates/9/i386.newkey//yum-3.2.20-5.fc9.noarch.rpm

And that should hopefully get you yum back. 
Then you should be able to 'yum install' all the other items you are
missing. 

I would sure like to know how and why it removed packages however.
