Well .. the problem is that yum breaks their VPS

Those VPS providers should have provided another way to get updates and 
install packages.

If you install yum with the normal defaults it will allow you to install 
packages that will break your VPS.

You should ONLY do what the VPS providers says to do and you should ONLY 
contact them for support.  To do anything else will break your system
