Right at the top left corner of the screen is the dropdown menu listing
Applications -> System Tools -> Terminal.
Once the Terminal is up and running at the prompt type in
$ su -
the system will ask for the ROOT [super] user password. Once that is
typed and submitted the prompt will change to #, and will be ready for
accepting commands allowed for super user ,and then you can run
# yum update yum
or simply the following command as yours is a fresh install.
# yum update
Hope this helps.
