The fact that they make you sit with an older version without any
patches says that

Not relevant.  These machines are not tied to any public network.  As
much as I appreciate the commentary and lessons you're not telling me
anything I'm not already aware of.  I'm simply seeking some insight on
this particular bug and, more generally, if there's a better way to find
status on something like this.  So far RP Herrold has helped most as I
was not aware that there's been much conversation within anaconda and
kickstart mailing lists.
