How's your Yum configured? See this:

Well. I actually didn't configure anything. I just used that to install. Now I wanted to upgrade and it gives me this respond. Can You explain what 2 last lines mean?

Have you tried just yum update? Don't specify any packages.

Could not find update match for python
No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion

These mean that it couldn't find a package called python that is an updated version from what is already installed.

Thanks for explanation! But
$ yum update
updates everything! But I have limited traffic! So, I just can't do that. I've tried
$ yum update yum
- But get the same answer as in Python case... By the way, why I can't use FC5's packages - those that weren't marked as FC5 ones (in the naming)?

the updates that have been released for FC5 are here (http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/5/). If it is in the directory that corresponds to the version of FC you have installed, yum is able to update it. If not, there hasn't been an updated version of the package released, so the most recent version what you already have installed. You will note that neither python nor yum has an updateed package. Hope that helps :)
