after I've installed the updates today (22 Oct) I can't login to Fedora. Everytime he starts to login than I've got a failure screen and I'm logged out. I can't do anything to login. Is there a way to remove the last updates?

Such issues arise generally with gnome-shell extensions that have not been updated to function properly with the latest gnome-shell release. Please try to disable all your extensions and then retry.

You can access a virtual terminal using ctrl alt f2 and undo the last yum transaction using sudo yum history undo last. However, this is not guaranteed to work since it depends on the availability of the previous versions of the packages. A sudo yum downgrade gnome-shell might be the way out here until you figure out what extension is breaking your desktop.
