Hi Oliver, here it's your solution:

Try this please: (as Root)

yum clean all


yum makecache


su -c "yum -y --skip-broken update"


Reboot your system and turn the Update checker to "Daily" instead of "Per Hour" Some days later, when 
there are updates available, you are going to get notifications.
