Yum, Apt-get and Up2date. are all generaly the same software. They all update your system and slove dependency problems. All 3 programs use 3 different "databases" as to what servers to ask for new software. To see what servers "yum" uses type in
nano -w yum.conf
that will give you a list of servers that Yum uses, these are different from Up2Date though.
I believe you can upgrade for major Core to major Core. It could get a lot messy though. I don't know how to upgrade though, someone will come along shortly though.
