error updating filesets

I ran yum update and get this. Any idea how I can bypass this or correct it.
I dont know why it fails on the repository. I did not make any changes and it works a while back. This is not my primary partition so I forget to update it.

How do I get this to work or bypas this 1 package so I can get the other sw to update.

Transaction Summary
Install 17 Package(s)
Update 135 Package(s)
Remove 1 Package(s)

Total size: 240 M
Total download size: 64 M

I tried the gui software update too under system/administration/update system and it come sup with a list of updates but when I press the update button it does not work. Just sits there. I can look at the preview but not update.

I go into the software sources tool and I cannot unselect the Adobie. Nor anything else.

So I went into /etc/yum.repos.d/ and remove adobe-linux-i386.repo for the dir and reran the update.

It updated OK now. I wonder why I cannot use the gui to make these changes and why yum does not bypass the adobie if it cannot find it etc. Why not just continue with the rest of the files?

This is a default install. Do I need to do something to allow me to makes these changes using the gui?

This did work in the past and I have not made any changes to the system.
