i received an email that yahoo classic mail and messenger needs an upgrade. Is this a scam?

That's a scam. Don't click on the link or attachment in the body of the message. Get the email deleted right away. You should know Yahoo has discontinued classic mail more than a year ago. You have either the Basic or Full-featured variants to choose from.
As for Yahoo Messenger, Verizon closed it down in July 2018. There are no plans to replace it.

Yahoo Classic has been gone for over a year.
It's no longer possible to switch back to the classic version of Yahoo Mail. It has been discontinued. There are currently 2 versions of Yahoo Mail for desktop web browsers that you can use: Basic Mail and the full-featured Yahoo Mail: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/sln15936.html
Instant messenger no longer exists. It was closed in July 2018: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN28776.html

VERY common type of scam. Do not respond.
