Ok. I just asked because you never mentioned you had actually checked. 
Just a kernel missing when you update is not proof ;-)
I see that you have priority protections in place. Disable all your extra 
repos, then disable the protections (basically go back to your inital repo 
setup) and then do a check-update. You are using the mirrorlist and not a 
specific CentOS mirror, do you?

BTW: I notice that your mail is missing any threading information, so that 
it doesn't thread at all. I see that other people who use Gmail do get the 
threading information, so there's probably some option not activated in 
your Gmail account.
