yum caches what it finds in the repodata for a certain amount of time,
which i believe is configurable by changing the "metadata_expire=1800"
line in /etc/yum.conf to something shorter.

perhaps you didn't notice it before today , because you may not have
been "yum updating" all day on a regular basis like you might have been
today to get the new kernel.  today, being a special day, we were all
checking often -- before our metadata expired.

so i cleaned it out, then forced yum to do a recheck from whatever
mirror it finds.
