Bad, bad, bad. You snipped the important details that would help
in understanding the dependencies. As I've run the extras repoclosure

There are updates to "perl" and "kdevelop", so which of your packages
require exactly the old package releases?

Sure. You just misinterpret Yum's output. It tells you that it
cannot update because there are installed package which require
the old package releases of perl and kdevelop.
