A few words of advise: 

1) Always try updates on a sandbox before putting them on your production 
   servers. You always have a good chance of updates breaking things,
   be it CentOS, Oracle, Microsoft, Solaries, AIX or anything else.
   Just naming a few I had past experiences of breakage on update.

2) Consider everything outside the Base repository as UNSTABLE. If it were
   stable enough, it would be on the Base repository.

Anyway, good luck. I hope things get fixed for you soon.

Best Regards,
