I doubt it.  I have 512M in my test machine and I went through a
recent transaction of around 1400 packages without any troubles.

An old laptop which used to have 256M of memory was just awfully
slow with yum updates (it does not run rawhide but Fedora).  Now I
found a fitting module, which doubled that memory, and updates got
much faster.

I would start with

   yum update rpm\* yum\*

before going with the rest.
