The man page for yum includes quite a bit of detail, and yum -h will give you a digest of the options that are available as well.


Is there something more specific that you are having trouble with regarding yum?

We have been answering your question. The man pages and yum -h provide the information that you need.


Unless you are having a specific issue or problem with yum.

You are asking for a 1-2 page summary of how to use yum. That is exactly what the yum man page is.
You also asked for the most commonly used commands, I provided those in my first post, if you want more details on them look at their entries in the man page.

What else are you looking for?
