"or something like that"?? Real error messages please.

Seperately try running yum update from a command line for more clarity about what's going on.

Sorry, I didn't see that bit. OK, if you hit (AFAIR) Ctrl+Alt+F1 to F4 you'll see the backend debugging windows which may well show much more information to get a hold of.

It says an unhandled exception has occurred. This is probably a bug. Then you can choose to save to remote, save to floppy, debug or continue. I have tried debugging and continuing and when i continue nothing happens when i debug it enters the dubugger and then does nothing.
