Having problems with updates and updating BIND

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi guys, I'm having 2 issues updating my Fedora 17 server. 1. The Software Updates app is broken and won't update anything. I connect to my headless server through a VNC session. When I try to run Software Updates, it shows me 80+ updates, I click Install, then it brings up another list of things it needs to install for dependencies, I click Install, and then I get a message: Failed to process request. Did not get authentication. So, then I go to a terminal, su to root, run a yum update, and then it sorta works, except for problem #2 (which I was able to get around using the --skip-brok (HowTos)
