Description of problem:
I don't know that this is really a bug but ever since I can remember check-update is the only yum command that requres a "-" in it.  everything else (groupupdate, grouplist) has no -.   Very minor issue, but check-update seems to be inconsistant with the rest of the syntax for yum, I would think it should just be checkupdate.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum check-update

changing it now just seems silly, really.
