I understand your question about "upgrading" as asking about changing 
from one Fedora Core distribution to another as in FC2 --> FC3.   If 
that is the case, you may be able to find something through Google that 
describes a procedure for upgrading a system through an ftp conection.  
Upgrading through synaptic might work, but I don't think 
synaptic/yum/up2date are designed to do that. 

I am no expert, but I think downloading the isos for the later 
distribution you are interested in and then choosing the upgrade option 
for installation would likely be a safer route than trying to do it 
through synaptic.  Since "upgrade" is offered as an installation 
option,  the task was anticipated and designed into the installation 
program (anaconda).

FWIW

I think you can do it with apt-get -f dist-upgrade
