I was doing a yum update today.
It downloaded all the packages.
was doing the next part and my remote connection was lost.
so ssh session was killed.

When I logged back in I am not sure if the update is done or not. I
presume not.
I presume it died with my remote session.

I do a yum update now and it returns as if there is nothing to update.
last I saw it was 30 out of 312 in the installation section.

What next?

    Check /var/log/yum.log and look at the time/dates of what was/was not done.

    IIRC, "rpm -qa --last >/tmp/<somefile" will give the information you
    need.

    This is a very good reason to use 'screen' ;).

    I have been burned by this also. Screen makes it much safer to run the updates.
