You didn't answer the question of what mirrors you have configured in
up2date.  Yum and up2date use different configuration files, so it is very
possible that one is set to use an out of date mirror.

Yum was mistakenly not installed by default, but can be installed either
from (IIRC the 4th) disc or via up2date.
