Actually, there are hundreds of updates for FC6, but not all are
security related. Additionally, there are many a dozen updates for
Fedora Extras 6 every week, but only few are security related.

Can you open a terminal and run "yum update" and show the output you
get before you're asked whether to download and install the updates?
