Hello, I might have done something I have no memory about but since 3 days, when I try to access google ,gmail, facebook from both google chrome and mozilla firefox. Seems certificates are rejected. But at the same time , I can use bing, ssl or not and other ssl protected sites.

I also tried to install a new application via yum. I don't know whether this are related issues but I had a lot of complains from yum. the issues are put in

How can I fix all this mess?

You can always reinstall...

Seems you have unfinished updates, try running:

package-cleanup --cleandupes

As for your certificates, first check your clock - make sure is current. If it is ok, you can try and reinstall the root CA bundle

yum reinstall ca-certificates

What do you mean by "went dark" - as you don't see the login screen after a reboot ?

I logged in in command line did the package clean up again. this time It finished it. I also run the certificate reinstallation. It still doesn't start the X windows

I don't see any package in the list your pasted that can cause this. You will need to check your logs/journal to see if any problem is mentioned there.
