Yes, quite. My apologies for being rather thick ...

yum list [available]
              list  all  packages  in  the  yum  repositories  available to be
              installed.

If a package is already installed, then it is not available to be installed.
As you said, since I already have the latest version installed

# rpm -qa | grep mysql
mysql-devel-3.23.58-1.9
mysql-server-3.23.58-1.9
mysql-3.23.58-1.9

those packages are not available to be installed by Yum.

Thank you for the learning lesson. Maybe I can help others on this topic later on.
