[CentOS] Update or not?

Update worked flawlessly (except for problems arising from saturated mirror bandwidth)

Afterwards, however, 'yum update' doesn't work because of 'dag' repository failures.

Taking 'dag' out of /etc/yum.conf lets me continue, what's with 'dag'?  Is he (his site) updated?

That advice worked for me.  The only negative thing I've noticed so far
is a ton of messages in /var/log/messages from dbus regarding the audit
system.  At this point, I don't know what they mean but nothing critical
seems to be broken.
