There isn't really one package called openoffice so running the above command 
is no better than "yum update abcdefghijkl".

What you probably want to do is to update all packages ("yum update").

The output below is also a bit strange. Giving yum update an incorrect pkg 
name should result in something like this added to the output:

 "No Match for argument: openoffice"

What are you running exactly?
