Hi Oliver, here it's your solution:

Try this please: (as Root)

yum clean all

ENTER

yum makecache

ENTER

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

ENTER

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.
