I just noticed on a stock install of 6.7 (from 6.4 doing a test), doing yum update shows this:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security

But on the box I just updated it shows:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, presto

So maybe the presto plugin is causing the problem.  Anyone else using presto plugin??
