i found a problem with dependencies in Centos 4

What I did:

I installed CentOS from my >>> 4.0 <<< CD media with httpd server.

this are installed versions:

and one of its dependecy

then I tried make update

"yum update"
  and I get
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Dependency: apr >= 0.9.4-24.2 for package: httpd
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: apr >= 0.9.4-24.2 is needed by package httpd

I discovered that this RPM in centos/4/updates/i386/RPMS/


depends on apr-0.9.4-24.2

but apr-0.9.4-24.2 is not in updates directory ...

there is  apr-0.9.4-24.3.i386.rpm in centos/4/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/ which
is in Centos 4.1

But my system is 4.0 and it never even listen about apr-0.9.4-24.3.
My yum knows only update directory centos/4/updates/i386/RPMS/ and its
CD media.

Did I something wrong?
