openSUSE 11.0 zypper won't update some packages

I have just done a fresh install of openSUSE 11.0 x86_64 and have run
into a zypper/openSUSE updater problem. There are three packages which
are claimed to be required to be updated from openSUSE-11.0-Updates but
neither zypper nor openSUSE updater does anything when I authorize the
update. For example, as root using zypper, this is what I get:

xxx:/home/xxx # zypper lu

I have looked at the 11.0 update repository and there are two delta
rpms for these packages and I have downloaded these packages and tried
to install them but YaST tells me they are already installed. I have
also updated these packages through YaST so I am pretty sure I have the
latest versions installed. Aside from these packages the updater seems
to be working, for example, the latest fixes to cups were installed
without problem.

Does anyone have any suggestions to clear the zypper/openSUSE updater
listings? Thanks.

I think I briefly remember this happening. I ran the Online update
module in YaST instead of through zypper:

Code:

yast2 online_update

And it cleared it up.
