I check frequently backlinks and SERPS for my website and my competitors. Now I see in Yahoo that it has dropped in one of my sites all but 5 pages. Also, it has dropped all back links (including for some of my competitors). This seems like a hit and missed on some of my sites and my competitors.

In the contrary, I guessed other sites that I owned have benefited from this ranking high in competitive keywords.

Is there a major update in Yahoo going on now?

This has been a problem for many webmaster's in Yahoo for about 2 months. You should try contacting Yahoo, though there is no guarantee that will help anything.

It's not just about getting quality backlinks. I contacted Yahoo about a problem I was having with only my homepage showing up in the serps. About a month later I got their cookie-cutter response, but all my pages were re-indexed. Could be just a coincidence, though. This is why I would try contacting them.

Note from Yahoo's Blog today:

Third Weather Report: Yahoo! Launched New Search Index Last Night
We made changes to the index last night so you should be seeing more of your pages in the index as well as some fluctuations in the rankings of results from previous searches. The changes will be a little more intense than the second weather report and changes will continue over the next week or two.

If you have any feedback for us about the new index please email: ystfeedback@yahoo.com.

We look forward to hearing from you.
