  where is this "362MB" of updates coming from?  immediately after i
installed, i switched yum to "keepcache" to have a record of all
updates in case i want to install on a 2nd system, and the updates
packages directory contains only 188M right now in 87 packages, and
there are no pending updates.

  this is on x86_64, by the way.
