I always install from the latest tarball from the WP site, as it's the 
latest at the time of installation. With regards to WP updates and 
versions, this is generally performed with it's own built in 
updating/upgrading mechanism which is the first thing you should check 
or do after install and on an ongoing basis - IMHO anyway.

I've not tried the repo's or rpms, but i'm guessing if you install from 
them, the same process applies for updates with WP i.e. it's done from 
the WP web console and you would definitely want to check that after an 
install from those sources as they would be a bit behind.
