    So I tried to fix this with a manual update and this happened:

 policycoreutils-gui     i386       2.0.32-2.fc8     updates           161 k

Public key for yum-3.2.8-2.fc8.noarch.rpm is not installed
[root at k5di ~]#

What this means is there must be one public key missing and the dam 
update fails.
