You were correct to cause me to look at the downloadonly plugin... it
was enabled.  I originally did in upgrade from f12 to f13 instead of a
new install, and then installed yum-cron.  I do not remember installing
the downloadonly plugin, or enabling it.  I used your syntax to remove
the plug in as well as yum-cron..... but the results of yum check-update
were :
[root at Re01 pluginconf.d]# yum check-update
Loaded plugins: presto, priorities, refresh-packagekit
3487 packages excluded due to repository priority protections

So no cigar yet.........
