Looks like you had a stale cache. E.g., Your cached metadata and whatnot
was of a slightly outdated mirror, so when you tried to update the first
time there was nothing that needed to be done.
But after you cleaned the cache and metadata, Yum retrieved that of a
_new_ mirror with updated repository data, and thus was able to run
through your updates as expected.
Hope that helps.
