I’m still not getting the firefox-38.1.1-1.el6.CentOS.x86_64.rpm that was announced yesterday (8 August) morning. I looked at several of the mirror sites I receive, and they all have the new firefox in their Packages directory, but their repodata is all a day older (7 August), so yum doesn’t see the update.

Example mirror: http://mirror.cs.uwp.edu/pub/CentOS/6.7/updates/x86_64/

    Did that several times. The problem is with the out-of-date metadata on the mirrors themselves. Cleaning my local cache and re-downloading the same bad metadata isn’t going to help.

    Downloading the package itself and updating from the local file works, as does storing the package in a local repo and updating from that.
