these are all updates released in the last 2 days, I suspect you were
just hitting a mirror machine that did not have the entire rpms/ content
in sync as yet.

If you continue to see this issue, please open an issue report at
bugs.centos.org and provide some details about what mirrors your machine
is hitting ( usually, the fastest-mirror's timedhosts file is a good
thing to check for this info )
