Johnny, one again many thanks. You were right I had
yum-plugin-protectbase rather than yum-protectbase. I had removed
fastestmirror as it caused Yum to crash when I first ran it.I have
reinstalled it and it looks like all is well now.
I decided to upgrade rather than reinstall as this is a desktop system
and I do have the data backed up so I could always do a clean install if
the upgrade failed.
I have done a search for *.rpmnew and there are surprisingly few -
working my way through them now.
Again Many Thanks
