Running with yum -y upgrade works.

it is a translation bug, should have been [j/N], fixed upstream

*** Bug 441024 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 3 Tim Niemueller 2008-04-06 11:33:01 EDT
Will there be the possibility to type y/n always regardless of locale? That'd be
really helpful...

Comment 5 seth vidal 2008-04-06 12:21:39 EDT
No, I can foresee a translation where n will be the char for 'yes' at which
point we're screwed.

Comment 6 Tim Niemueller 2008-04-06 13:15:37 EDT
Is there actually such a case already or is this just a wild guess? I'd rather
add an extra check and print an extra warning if the meaning of "n" is reversed
rather than annoying current users that are used to type 'y' instead of the
localized string - at least it's going to annoy me.

If you want to deal with yum in english then set your locale/lang when running yum.
