vault's purpose is to provide the sources used to create the packages for all CentOS versions that were ever released, as well as to provide access to older archived versions ( which are removed from the mirrors ).
In order to use yum update, please point your system(s) to a valid current mirror because vault was never intended to be used as updated tree for installing or even updating an existing CentOS installation. To be fully honest I am surprised that the binary packages for the current minor release even exist on vault, the correct place to download them from are the mirrors.
