Did you, perchance, save a debug output of the failure to update?
not seen this problem and I'd be curious to know what was going on
I can reproduce this, yum simply exits with "No actions to take" even
though it has downloaded the new header.
yum update > /root/yum-switchdesk-failure 2>&1 & disown
produces a 424k dump with 'debuglevel=10' and 'errorlevel=10'.
I will send it directly to you rather than the list if you would like...
(if that is excessive for this I can produce something smaller) :)
