Default Yum: No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion -- when there obviously are!

I am having a puzzling problem with yum. I have not updated my FC6 box
(Pentium 4) since December but '$sudo yum update' told me that there
were no packages marked for update. Puzzled, I gave myself root
privileges using 'su -' and did a clean-up using the command,


# yum clean all

This started to look promising, but the same message was returned after
it had chewed through the repos:

On the off-chance, I also restarted the updates daemon, even though as I
understand it this would not have any effect on the actual updating
process, but this has not changed anything either. I have not changed my
yum config files since installation (except to keep a few more copies of
packages than the standard 2 (as per installonlyn.conf). Yesterday I
installed qtparted with yum just to see if that would work and it did. I
have looked through the man pages and done some googling but nothing on
precisely this problem, as far as I can see. I should add that I have
seen this before but it has "just" cleared up.


Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance,

Ian Astley
