might want to check on the settings in yum.conf as it appears that yum
is ignoring the 'package not found' error.
Also, try using the update parameter instead of upgrade.

I have problems with yum sometimes. Like if I say 'yum update
packagex', it will update my entire system, or try to anyway. That is
the syntax from the man page. I haven't seen what option turns that
off. Does anyone know if yum has a '--force singlepackageonly' type
Doesn't man yum with: "update If run without any packages, update
will update every currently installed package. If one or more
packages are specified, Yum will only update the listed
packages. While updating packages, yum will ensure that all
dependencies are satisfied. If no package matches the
package name(s), they are assumed to be a shell glob and any
matches are then installed." answer both your questions?
Thanks for asking. I am not near a Fedora machine at the moment. To
answer your question, the answer is, 'no, it does not answer my
questions'. That is, I have also looked at the man page, but it does
not do what the man page says it should do.
yum update packagename
will try to update my _entire_system_ regardless of packages.
Weird. By the way this is with packages known to be installed.
Maybe is has to do with some particular package that is interfering
with yum, who knows. I am trying to 'force' it to upgrade a single
package, not the whole system - which is of course time consuming,
unnecessary, and a hassle as well. I will run it when I get home and
post it if I can reproduce the error.
