there is a possibility that yum-cron package, which requires downloadonly plugin
package was the intended way to maintain your system.
If your machine were part of a corporate environment, it could be set up by
your tech people to run yum-cron job daily/weekly from a corporate cache of
packages (instead of directly from the Interent).
That would explain the output of:
> [root <at> Re01 ~]# yum list evolution
> Loaded plugins: downloadonly, presto, priorities, refresh-packagekit

> evolution.i686             2.30.1-6.fc13
> @anaconda-InstallationRepo-201005130056.i38
the full list of packages (that big file ...:) ).
This @anaconda-InstallationRepo-201005130056.i38 could be some kind of a repo.
If you are in that kind of environment, let me know.
So please stay put, we will try to figure it out.
