Unhappy Auto Updates in Fedora 14 wants to install Fedora 15 update

My fedora 14 system keeps wanting to install a fedora 15 up date (Vlc-1.1.5-1.fc15(i686) the cross platform open source media framework) which as I would expect is rejected by the system. Why is this happening and how do I stop this situation from reoccuring>

How are you updating - yum or rpm?

Post your yum config files here (please use the Code tags to make them readable).

This problem occurs during my Fedora 14 System's Automatic Update Process where in "Preferences" I selected "daily updates". What happens is everyday the system finds this Fedora 15 Update (Vlc-1.1.5-1.fc15(i686))and wants to install it. If I accept the update it is rejected, by the Fedora 14 as one would expect. When try to update using Yum, to update, that tells me my system is up to date.

I updated to Fedora 14 from 13 when it was first released and until now the daily updates have been working just fine.

It may be that you have the developement repos turned on. If I recall correctly Fedora calls the developement repo rawhide and it maintains that name (and location) accross all the versions.
