*smacks head*
Missed that.

I assume redhat-update (I think that's what it's called) is running. You could shut it down and do a yum update.

 Thanks Mark. Sorry about the top posting. I hope I am posting correctly now, but if not please let me know.
I went in and stopped the redhat update like you mentioned and then tried the yum update on the server, but it tells me there are no packages marked for update.
Here is an example of some of the events listed for me to do (there are 116):  

Errata Update: RHBA-2012:0261-1 - httpd bug fix and enhancement update scheduled by dalton_state
Errata Update: 	Errata Update: RHBA-2013:0139-1 - httpd bug fix update scheduled by dalton_state
Errata Update: RHEA-2012:1415-1 - iptables enhancement update scheduled by dalton_state
Errata Update: RHSA-2012:0699-1 - Moderate: openssl security and bug fix update scheduled by dalton_state

BTW, are you the funny and nice Mark that was responding to my earlier problem last week with having started these updates then stopped them mid-stream when some of our professors could not ssh to the webserver using Expression Web software via SFTP?

If so, I have finished the 506 updates that redhat showed were needed. But then noticed today that 116 showing failed had been placed in the Events history section on the red hat customer portal website for my registered server. Since my problem with clients still not being able to SSH via SFTP in Expression Web still exists after finishing the updates - I wanted to get these 116 done to see if that would fix the problem. But I can't seem to get them to run.

Our Network Administrator suggested that my problem with the SSH / SFTP Expression Web Websever access was due to there being different versions on the system now because of the updates. He said I needed to check the versions of both and may need to uninstall SSH, compile a version from source that will work with SFTP.

All that is greek to me. He said he manually created what had been setup for the SSH / SFTP that was running well before I did some of those updates.

I put in the command:  ssh -v          and got the version of SSH  (Open SSH_4.3p2, OpenSSH 0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 01 Jul 2008)
But I cannot find a way to check the sftp version to compare. 

Any suggestions - web links, you can think of to pass on to help me?

Thank you!
