The problem was traced down to epel repo not being available during the install. Tried to install it and it would not take. I finally just had to configure it in the /etc/yum.repo.d directory. Once I did this the updated worked. I hope this helps some else in the future.
3.9.1-16 is the current testing version. 3.9.2 is the stable branch. With the rebase to OpenSUSE, I believe that 3.9.1-16 is the last testing version until the rebase to OpenSUSE is complete. @phillxnet can provide further clarification on this.
But given we are very far along the path to rebasing on openSUSE you might be better advised to follow the developer orientated docs in the following forum Wiki entry:
But note that all settings will be deleted upon each fresh build as we make numerous database changes that can only be managed via the release service as a development build is treated as an unknown version in all cases.
However if you are more interested in our rpm ‘service’ then that is currently only available via our Stable channel subscription which is our attempt at achieving sustainability as an open sourced project. This is explained in more details in our following recently updated doc entry:
Where it states our desire to bring back the developer favourite of the testing channel but only for our new target distro of openSUSE. This effort is very much underway and if you keep an eye on the forum you may soon see how you can get started as a tester via this channel. but it is not treated as a production release and will have many breakages as that is it’s intended purpose: to weed out the bugs. But be warned that we are not yet near feature parity and until we are the CentOS Stable channel is the preferred ‘mostly working’ offering. But I have every intention of pushing our openSUSE releases to match our CentOS offerings as soon as possible. Their after we will ‘curate’ a Stable channel much as we do now but for openSUSE only then.
Hope that helps to explain our current and near future plans.
