If I just want to update one package say CUPS, can I use this syntax

# yum update cups

Your use is fine, you just need to do one thing first.  (Load the gpg

It is probably in /usr/share/doc/<distroname>/RPM-GPG-KEY or somewhere

locate RPM-GPG 
may find it

Once you have it 

rpm --import <key file name>

and redo your yum command.
