Exclamation yum update problems on FC4

I tried to run yum to update packages. I am getting the following error:

--> Running transaction check
--> 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
Error: Missing Dependency: is needed by package evolution
[root@localhost xxx]#

What i dont understand is that yum is supposed to resolve and get the missing dependencies itself. So why is it giving me a missing dependency error and HOW DO I RESOLVE this problem?

You might have to add more sites to YUM so it can find what it needs.

If that does not work try Yum Extender.
