The same thing happened to me while following the
guide for FC4 (at the same point too, snmp).
Unfortunately, I took the brute force approach and
When I got back to the point of doing the upgrade, I
first did a 'yum upgrade kernel' and a reboot. This
will install the newest kernel. Then I was sucessful
in using 'yum upgrade'.
The thing I don't like about yum is that it seems to
get its update packages from random servers.
Sometimes I got 500kB/s, sometimes 100kB/s. Very
frustrating, but maybe there is a way around it.
