from the yum manpage:

       list   can be used to list various information  about  available 
              ages;  more  complete  details are available in the List
              section below.

now, what you're seeing isn't available upgraes, just what's available to
install...  also, take note of the archetectures of the packages you're
seeing... glibc and kernel are arch specific... i'm guessing you're on an
i686 platform, not 386/athlon/586, which are what those upgrades are for.

and you also installed everything when you did you rinitial install, eh?
