You can update this yourself to hardcode the 5.4 version of your
mirror, e.g someone else in this thread said this was their mirror :


and you can change the 5.3 to 5.4 to see that 5.4 is there already,
but maybe the "5" symlink has not yet been changed to point to it


So update the repo file to something like this :

> #mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=updates
> baseurl=http://www.muug.mb.ca/pub/centos/5.4/updates/i386/
