It was done at least once (in pre-F7 times, maybe FC6, FC5 or so) for a broken 
kernel upgrade. The maintainer decided that it's better to withdraw the broken 
update to minimize damage until it's fixed. It may well be that this is what 
happened here too.

I have reopened the update request and added the Security keyword.
