One of the most inportant advance of Linux over Windows is the
fact, that there are only a few situations - like kernel updates -
which requires a reboot of your system.

This features is inpractical of server systems where you want to
avoid reboots to minimizize downtimes.

Yum may detect this virtaul provide during the update and can take
