This will have a similar effect to what "yum clean all" in that it throws away the old metadata and fetches it new. The pulp-admin commands don't have a way to force consumers to perform a "yum clean all" that I know of.

Sounds like a good feature request.

The "automatically fetch the latest" is a Yum behavior so you can use Yum on the consumers directly to change which version gets installed if you don't want the latest of a given package. Pulp does not provide a way for you to specify this behavior through Pulp. You should use yum directly for this.

Have you tried specifying '-n package-1.1-1'.  That should work.
