Yeah. I would have thought it checks the date of the file and tries to 
update it when it's that old. Anyway, clearing the whole yum cache was a 
good idea as I don't need the 5.8 rpms anymore. I just didn't think about 
that first, it's been long ...

Thanks for the quick reply! It assured me that there was no special 
procedure necessary, so I thought again and remembered that.
