Thanks for the quick and helpful replies.  Also, thank you for pointing out that I should have been looking in updates, not os. That makes perfect sense, but I got hung up on the fact that it was missing from os. Anyway, that led to me discovering that on one of my internal mirrors the updates repo hadn’t synced in a couple months, which was ultimately the cause for the missing package in that environment, but still as Johnny pointed out this package was released August 31st and should be in the os repo by now, and it’s not. Also, I was wrong since it’s missing from both the 6.9 and 6 os repo. I just checked again from a browser that has never been to this url so there’s no chance of something being cached and still I see the 122 package at http://mirror.centos.org/centos-6/6/os/x86_64/Packages/. Ultimately, you helped me solve my problem, but the package is not in os directory yet like Johnny said it normally would be.

# This is the openssh package I see at the URL I gave above
openssh-5.3p1-122.el6.x86_64.rpm <http://mirror.centos.org/centos-6/6/os/x86_64/Packages/openssh-5.3p1-122.el6.x86_64.rpm>	23-Mar-2017 14:58 	277K
