I tried to update my computer today, using yum update. I got this answer:

Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Setting up Package Sacks
Reading Local RPMDB
Building updates object
No Packages marked for Update/Obsoletion

At least it should have updated the kernel: I am running a 2.6.20 kernel
and 2.6.22 is on fedora update server.....
Where is the proof?
I don't know what "proof" you want,

Proof that the OP looks at the same "fedora update server" that Yum
looks at, and that the 2.6.20 kernel is installed as an RPM package
actually. There are "rpm" and "yum list" commands to do that.

Because yum doesn't show which mirror it is connecting to by default, it might be helpful for Francois to:
yum -d 15 update
and while it is downloading the metadata/headers, netstat -t to see where the active tcp connections are made to. Or packet capture using wireshark.

From memory the mirrorlist will give different results for each yum run, and yum by default randomizes the list that the mirrorlist provides, so that it is difficult to know which mirror was contacted.
