Before you manually remove any of the packages listed run "yum
upgrade" again. "package-cleanup --orphans" is really a dumb utility.
It only tells you that the package is no longer in a active
repository. The listed package(s) may have been obsoleted due to a
pending update.
 Packages listed may also include those you installed from outside of
the repository system, e.g. Opera,  Adobe Flashplayer or other third
party rpm package.
