I'm trying to do a yum update and only apply the security patches.

I'm aware of yum update --security , however when I do that it fails to
install any updates.  I've tried this on a fresh 7.8.2003 (core) system, as
well as the Centos 7 AMI on AWS, specifically ami-04a25c39dc7a8aebb and I
get the same results.

There are definitely security updates to apply.

For each package which needs to be updated, it lists "<package name>" from
updates removed (updateinfo).

Does anyone know what's going on here?
