I updated my centos 4.5 server to centos last week and I am now getting
errors when I attempt to do a yum update:

[root at AJD-slag ~]# yum update
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Plugin "fastestmirror" uses deprecated constant TYPE_INTERFACE.
Please use TYPE_INTERACTIVE instead.

Any suggestions, Google has not been my friend today.

Thanks,
