The YUM update from Sunday / Monday should have fixed this. On 5107R and 5108R 
we ended up having two cronjogs doing YUM updates: One provided by the OS and 
one provided by the GUI through the base-swupdate module.

The new base-swupdate module now disables the OS included auto-updater and 
just uses the one that the GUI provides. 

And yes: The OS included auto-updater sent the update emails rather as 
attachment than as plain text.

With best regards
