Packages in /var/cache/yum/<repo-name>/packages/

... are saved when /etc/yum.conf says : keepcache=1


Default is : keepcache=0 , so all packages has probably already been deleted.

The keepcache=1 causes yum to retain the downloaded packages in /var/cache/yum or any other path as specified by cachedir in /etc/yum.conf. Unfortunately the packages you already installed (having keepcache=0) have been deleted and I'm afraid you have to download them again this time.
