Description of problem:
No RPMs are available for kernel-devel and kernel-modules for kernel-4.19.5-300. All attempts to get these rpms will 404.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a new Fedora-Cloud-Base-29 system on AWS
2. Attempt to install the kernel-devel package
3. Get 404 timeout failure

kernel-devel should install.
This affect the Glusterfs kernel modules as well. Not sure what other modules are affected.
I'm aware that an update to 4.19.6 was released last night, but (for some reason) that's not available for Cloud Base yet.
The actual problem is different: it's that 4.19.6 is not available from a large part of the mirror network.
After trying a number of things, the only way to upgrade to 4.19.6 was to hand-pick an updated mirror and paste it directly into fedora-updates.repo.
Otherwise, I got this:
[root@ip-172-31-14-197 ~]# dnf clean all
29 files removed
[root@ip-172-31-14-197 ~]# dnf update --refresh

Fedora 29 - x86_64 - Updates 10 MB/s | 16 MB 00:01
Fedora 29 - x86_64 24 MB/s | 62 MB 00:02
Nothing to do.

Updating title of bug accordingly.
To sum up: the problem is that while kernel-4.19.6 is not available on many mirrors, those mirrors have already deleted the 4.19.5 modules and kernel headers.
This is not an issue with the kernel. This is a Fedora infrastructure issue. In the future please file a ticket at https://pagure.io/fedora-infrastructure/issues for anything related to syncing of RPMs.
Thanks, filing bug in Pagure.
