I'm no yum expert, but I would have thought "yum update"
would just look at the packages listed in /var/log/rpmpkgs ,
but would not check if these packages were actually present.
So I don't see that this would help you in your predicament.
But I'd be glad to be contradicted.

If I had been in your position,
I would have tried upgrading to Fedora-3.
I imagine virtually all the packages would have been updated.
