Strange, but now it's working.  Didn't do the yum clean all (or yum
clean packages).  I do run that once in a while, but it doesn't appear
to be necessary (at least never has been).  I'm wondering if somehow
things are setup to regulate the number of systems updating by
staggering updates.  I can't imagine as they would have to selectively
chose to disadvantage some people by delaying their patching. 
Probably what may have been happening is that a maximum number of
connections to the repos was being reached.  I was getting a single
update here and there, but not complete list of updates.  Might that
have been the problem?

At least I now know it's not the configuration of my system.  That was
my main concern as that is the only thing I have direct control over
