    That is a phishing scam. Ignore and delete it. This is how to identify legitimate Yahoo websites, requests, and communications: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN2091.html

    The answer is a definite yes. Scam messages that request you to "upgrade" your email account must be ignored and deleted immediately. Never click on the attachment in the message of you'll risk unleashing malware on your computer or mobile device. Remember Yahoo would never send you unsolicited emails asking for your personal information.

    It is a scam. If you look at the details of the header, it is not from Yahoo at all.

    SCAM...I've been getting similar for months now.  Make it as spam and for heavens sake don't click on anything in that email.
