You provide only a vague reference to god-knows-what form of impending doom, 
so perhaps you aren't aware of what `yes "n" | yum update` actually does? Do 
you need to read it a bit closer? 

Perhaps you have a better way to find out what packages are reported by yum as 
ready for update that you might want to test first? 

And I yes, I do sysadmin work as an integral part of my profession...
