Doesn't my previous reply answer that?
Assuming you don't want to use yum at all: I could point you to RPM, but your life will be much more complicated if you use that:
- You need to figure out which packages need updating,
- You need to download them (and possible dependencies),
- You need to install them using rpm (after first installing the possible dependencies).
All the above is done by yum, either by running yum update
or the method I mentioned in my previous post.
Hope this helps.
