I've been having very inconsistent

update" when I know there are packages to update.
If I try it with just download.fedora.Redhat.com

sometimes fails, when I try it with several mirrors in addition to
sometimes it works and some times it doesn't.
AFAIK, the behaviour described above is usually a result of the time it
takes for the mirrors to get in sync with the download.fedora.redhat.com
server. I suggest either waiting for the mirror to get updated, or to
choose a mirror that gets updated more frequently. Downloading directly
from the download.fedora.redhat.com
is usually not worth it because it
is extremely slow.
