Thanks everybody who answered I just wanted somebody to corroborate my
experience. I faced the same when upgrading from RH 7.3 to RH 9 that
time the change was too vast for me to even start thinking which are the
missing packages. I just went ahead and took backup and reinstalled
cleanly this time though I will take the pains and install(yum,
rhgb(Thanks Shrek had forgotten this one) etc) and uninstall (galeon
which is segfaulting now).
