yum update hung, now cant find updates

I decided to run a yum update. 188 packages to install/update so I set it off going.

It hangs on one of the packaged, so after about an hour, I abort it with ^c. It was on update 81/188

Now however, yum update says there is nothing to update, when there should be at least 100 updates that need to be applied.

Is there anyway to get yum to to a more throughough check?

Upon further investigation it seems that I must have unknowingly hit ^s then when I came back to it, yum had finished, so when I hit ^c I got no error and no output but infact yum had finished. I'm sure I tried ^q before ^c though, but there you go.

When I look at /var/log/yum.log I can see 280+ entries so it looks like it did.
