Get thee to a basic Unix-shell tutorial. From

    Use the standard wild-card characters to run any search option with a
    partial word or name: ? to represent any one character, and * to mean
    zero or more characters. Always add the escape character (\) before

    To list all packages with names that begin with tsc, type:

        su -c 'yum list tsc\*'

So, if I want to update all packages with yum except myth-related
ones, I'd type

# yum update --exclude=\*myth\*
