Does a: 

'yum clean all' 
then retrying help/solve it?

If so, then you have cached metadata thats older than a few days. 
If not, then it's indeed those mirrors that are out of sync.

You can report it to the mirror-admin list
Or bring it up to infrastructure folks and we can try and contact the
mirror admins directly for that mirror. 

Perhaps one thing we should revsit is dnf/yum metadata caching times on
the various repos to align with how often we push updates.
