OK, I have done "yum upgrade" but after down load of all packages I get 
transacton error:

   file /lib64/ from install of 
compat-db47-4.7.25-15.fc13.x86_64 conflicts with file from package 
   file /usr/lib64/nautilus-sendto/plugins/ from 
install of gnome-bluetooth-2.30.0-1.fc13.x86_64 conflicts with file from 
package nautilus-sendto-2.28.2-2.fc12.x86_64

And I am not sure what I should do now. Any comments?
