Description of problem: i use the yum upgrde command to check for updates, and i use the gui to check for change log (i use the fedora testing repo, and i need to be sure if something could crash o damage the system). In this instance the cli report a new kernel (among other things), but no the gui (it only report a firefox 16.0.1 for other repo). I use the yum update firefox command in the cli and the update is ok. When try to update the other things yum says it has no new updates.

How reproducible: this is the first time it happens (after this i use it to install other things without problems)

Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum upgrade
2.anwser no 
3.check yum info (something) to check if yum respect your decision 
4.also try to use the software, in my case dint work (the kernel have a lot of deps problems)
Actual results: yum did install a new kernel without my consent

Expected results: yum should havent install and wait for me to try again

Additional info: I dont know a huge lot about yum and cli to do a proper analysis, and i accept that i am just a human being, but i do belive that any time an update tool with root access dosent respect a user, something must be wrong

 Yum won't do the update without user confirmation, Maybe you are telling PK it's fine to do silent/background updates? Maybe yum-cron is running?

 "yum history" can help you get to the bottom of these problems (see what did the update).
