You need to import the GPG keys for the various repositories. If you're
just using the standard repos, then issue the following command:

locate GPG

most likely the GPG keys should be in /usr/share/rhn/ (for a fedora
installation). Then you simply issue the command that the message

rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora

Obviously, if you're using a different distro things might work
differently...but I'm assuming you're using Fedora.

Anyway, after you've done that try issuing the yum update command again.
Let me know if you have trouble with the above.
