First, thanks for attention of all but, unfortunately, I'm still confuse.

I made some experiences based on responses you gave me.

1#) The problem is caused because I disabled the repository which I had 
installed the missing dependency from;
So I determined the repository of those packages
[root at desktop yum.repos.d]# rpm -qa | grep libdc1394
libdc1394-1.0.0-3.rhfc3.at ===> It comes from atrpms

[root at desktop yum.repos.d]# rpm -qa | grep pythonabi
pythonabi-2.3.4-1.rhfc3.at ===> It comes from atrpms

[root at desktop yum.repos.d]# rpm -qa | grep ffmpeg
ffmpeg-0.4.9-6_cvs20041125.rhfc3.at ===> It comes from atrpms

After, I enabled it:
[root at desktop yum.repos.d]# grep "enable" atrpms.repo

And try to upgrade the system again:
[root at desktop yum.repos.d]# yum -y upgrade
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: python = 2.3.4 for package: pythonabi
--> Processing Dependency: libdc1394_control.so.13 for package: ffmpeg
--> Processing Dependency: liboil-0.2.so.0 for package: swfdec
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: python = 2.3.4 is needed by package pythonabi
Error: Missing Dependency: libdc1394_control.so.13 is needed by package 
Error: Missing Dependency: liboil-0.2.so.0 is needed by package swfdec

2#) So, I guess remove the packages which cause the missing dependencies 
should part of the solution.

[root at desktop yum.repos.d]# yum remove ffmpeg

[root at desktop yum.repos.d]# yum remove pythonabi

Is this ok [y/N]: n
Exiting on user Command

If I remove pythonby, it will remove yum.

Am I face to face a deadlock which avoids the system upgrade using yum?
