I'm guessing that you're looking for Mono via yum.  I don't know if the
CentOS yum repo's host Mono - I wish they did so that I wouldn't have to be
bothered with manual installation and updates.  :)

If this isn't related to Mono I recommend you pursue your Linux update
issues at http://www.CentOS.org.

You don't say if you're using v3 or v4.  This is for v4 !!  For CentOS your
yum config info is in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources.  If that file doesn't
contain the following lines somewhere, add them:

yum centos4-Base http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/os/$ARCH/
yum centos4-Updates http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/updates/$ARCH/
yum centos4-extras http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/extras/$ARCH/
yum centos4-contrib http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/contrib/$ARCH/
yum centos4-addons http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/addons/$ARCH/
yum centos4-centosplus http://mirror.centos.org/centos/4/centosplus/$ARCH/

Be careful, see this recent issue:

CentOS4 includes a new update process which will dynamically select a
mirror based on your location.  I believe this will be configured after you
get your first update.
