This command lets you list packages in any repository enabled on your system or installed.
It also lets you list specific types of packages as well as refine your list with a package specification of any of the package's name, arch, version, release, epoch.
$ yum info yum Installed Packages Name : yum Arch : noarch Version : 3.2.20 Release : 3.fc10 Size : 2.5 M Repo : installed Summary : RPM installer/updater URL : License : GPLv2 Description: Yum is a utility that can check for and automatically download and : install updated RPM packages.
If you run "yum update" or "yum upgrade" without any other parameters all packages on your system including yum will be upgraded so there really is no need to upgrade yum on its own unless you are upgrading Fedora or Cent OS versions.
