kernel won't upgrade with yum CentOS 5


I am running yum update and it thinks 2.6.18-128.1.10.el5 is the latest kernel, even though its really 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5

Code:
[localdomain ~]# uname -a
Linux localdomain 2.6.18-128.1.10.el5 #1 SMP Thu May 7 10:39:21 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[localdomain ~]# yum update kernel
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update
[localdomain ~]# yum update

[localdomain ~]# cat /etc/grub.conf  |grep 194

The kernel is marked do-not-upgrade or whatever it's called. I don't have a RHEL system in front of me to say exactly, but look at yum's config files (probably in /etc/yum) and tell it to stop holding the kernel back.

I know what you are talking about, its the exclude line in yum.conf, but I am not excluding the kernel.
