Thanks to this post for the instructions.
# yum update
# yum clean all
# I like to repeated update and clean all a second time to make sure everything got updated
# Run the following command to update the yum repo on your box:
rpm -Uhv http://mirror.liberty.edu/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-9-2.noarch.rpm http://mirror.liberty.edu/pub/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/fedora-release-notes-9.0.0-1.noarch.rpm
# Next I had to do a “yum clean all” again before it picked up the change
# Next do a yum -y update
No major problems here … I had lighttpd installed, which was causing the update to fail 4 dependencies.
# rpm -e lighttpd
Fixed that … now to download the 1,200 some packages …
Another update tomorrow.
