Sometimes you may wish to see not only the version of a package you currently have installed but also the versions that are available for installation. Using following command, you can find out.
yum --showduplicates list package | expand
And here is the output you would expect using PHP as the example.
[jhudgins@www ~]$ sudo yum --showduplicates list php | expand [sudo] password for jhudgins: Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: ftp.osuosl.org * epel: mirrors.xmission.com * extras: centos.den.host-engine.com * updates: mirror.es.its.nyu.edu Installed Packages php.x86_64 5.4.16-36.1.el7_2.1 @updates Available Packages php.x86_64 5.4.16-36.el7_1 base php.x86_64 5.4.16-36.1.el7_2.1 updates
