Hosts normally advertise a VPS as being almost like a Dedicated Server. Lots of resources and lots of options. In this case, without being able to use yum, it starts as a Security problem, because he cannot update the packages that are installed. His second problem is that he cannot install new software with yum, which eliminates a lot of options. Unlike Shared Hosting, which is Managed, someone with a VPS must Manage their VPS, as if it was a Dedicated Server, or, pay someone to do that. But, how would they manage it, without yum? It's much more difficult, without yum. IMHO, he should look for a VPS with another provider, that allows him to use yum, etc.
