Do I understand correctly that these are *not* updated to current
Rawhide yet?

If so you would probably need to do the x86 and x86_64 updates in small
stages. Rawhide x86 was rebuild from i386 to i586 recently so I would
think that most, if not *all*, of the packages installed would be an
'update' on the x86 install.

That would hold true for the x86_64 install too for the x86 packages
installed there.

Good luck.
