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.

There are several things that you can try.  From the command line, enter:

yum clean all
yum update

To see if any updates are still pending.  Next check the package that the sftp command belongs to:

which sftp
rpm -qf /usr/bin/sftp
rpm -qf /usr/bin/ssh

They should belong to the same package.

Hi Mr. Hovdestad,

Yum update shows me there are no packages marked for update.
Yes, the locations are the same for sftp and ssh, but not sshd.
Not sure if that makes a difference with the sshd not being in a similar path location as the other two.
But they all 3 are showing to belong to the same package.
