Maybe you configured apt-get to use a proxy.  If you want
yum to use a proxy you can set the usual environment variables

export http_proxy=http://your_squid_server:port
export ftp_proxy=http://your_squid_server:port
yum update

If you have several machines, let one complete the update first
so the others can pull from the cache (you probably should tweak
the squid 'maximum_object_size' setting to store rpm packages).
