If you have network access, go to a repository, (a browser should do)
and find the F11 yum rpm.  Download it to your system.


As root, run    rpm -Uvh yum-package-name.

Then repeat your query above to confirm it was installed.

The fact that something as basic as yum didn't get upgraded on your
system would make me concerned about the success of the upgrade.  Did
the repositories get upgraded to the F11 repositories?

Check in /etc/yum.repos.d/ to see that they are for F11.

Before you do a general update, run

yum update yum*
yum update rpm*
to be sure that the update systems are all at latest versions.
