Question yum update dependency issues

Am trying to update thru yum but am getting the following error msg:

--> Processing Dependency: for package: gaim
--> Processing Dependency: for package: libwpd
--> Processing Dependency: for package: evolution
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: is needed by package gaim
Error: Missing Dependency: is needed by package libwpd

You said that you were having a yum update problem. Did you ever actually do a yum install of the original packages. I hope this works out for you. Good luck.
