Hector, welcome to dependency hell.
Fast way around this is uninstall tk, do the update, then reinstall it.
Many times, it's not considered a good idea to just update everything in one crunch; one can run into compatibility/version mismatch/dependency issues such as this.

Alternatively, you might try waiting a day or so and trying again.

What might have happened is that your repository maintainer has updated something to the latest version (in the repository), but that has in turn broken something else which still depends on it.

This is particularly common with testing repositories, and Fedora/RPM-based systems seem to have more problems than I have encountered running Ubuntu/DEB-based systems (but that may be apocryphal). Anyway, problems like these you should generally expect to be fixed fairly quickly.

So I would tend to wait at least a day, and if the problem persists then start by updating what packages you can, and then take it from there.

You could also talk to the Fedora package maintainers: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras

unistalling tk and updating the system worked fine, but reinstallation falls in the same problem:

Code:
yum install tk
Loaded plugins: downloadonly, refresh-packagekit

i will wait two days :-(

Next time this happens, try

yum update --exclude=tk

It saves you reinstalling (or not if it won't work)

Sorry - got the wrong package (I always have to play around with these problems - just updated a F9 system and hit the same issue)

yum update --exclude=tcl

(or yum update -xtcl)
