Some of the plugins could be the source of your problems.
At least their names sound suspicious. ;)

A mirror cannot be missing a single file from a set of packages built from
the same src.rpm. As explained before, it either has the newest metadata
or not. If it has the newest metadata with "ntpdate" and "ntp-perl" in it,
it also has "ntp" in it. The actual pkg file is here, btw (which is the
mirror listed in your Yum output), but files are not accessed prior to
the final downloading step.

Yes, I think the plugins cause your problem.
