Because ... if you have every modified your yum.conf file then it is NOT 
replaced by updates.  Therefore MANY CentOS users may not have 
obsoletes=1 set in their yum.conf file

Since there is a possible difference, using "yum upgrade" instead of 
"yum update" works for everyone ... yum update may or may not work.

If you were going to have one set of instructions, which should it be 
... one that works for everyone or one that might or might not work :D
