Hi Johan,

Yum should just re-download the required packages.
As Yum downloads data it stores it in /var/cache/yum/**repo** (where
repo is a subfolder for each repository)
If you wish to remove this cache you can run something like
yum clean all.

Regards,

Tris

If the update is done before material starts expiring. But yes, the
old packages will stick around for a while if not successfully
installed.

It's often helpful with that many updates and a remote upstream Yum
server to pick and update a few of the bulkier packages first, such as
glibc, and update the rest on the next go-around.
