Delayed updates with 2 almost identical systems

Hello,
I have 2 nearly identical desktop computers where 1 gets updates (via dnf) a few hours earlier than the other. Both had fastmirrors disabled and enabled without difference. What could be the reason for the delay?

greetings,
Patrick

I have multiple Fedora installations and confirm this behavior.
It appears to be the result of a round-robin redirect performed by the mirror service.
You can run the refresh command several times and it will eventually see the updates:

sudo dnf --refresh upgrade

You can also compare the DNF cache update timer/service status on your systems:

systemctl --no-pager status dnf-makecache.timer dnf-makecache.service
