cpanel update problem glib RPM not found

Cpanel is having a probelm updating glib c, evidently because all the mirrors the script
was using have moved or changed their directory structure, here is what I get:

> glibc: current version is 2.3.2-27.9.7, will be updated to 2.3.2-
> Fetching rpm mirror timestamp...Done
> Testing connection speed...(this could take a while)....Done

I have checked manually every mirror it icpanel tried to login to and there is
no longer a redhat directory at all, however I did locate a place that has it, but how
do you tell cpanel about it (with the new directory structure)

I think I found what it is looking for but it is located at these mirrors:

And the directory structure is now:

Anyway there is different directory structures for each server above, but the last one is:

Here is where you can find all the info at

How can I update this back to legacy like cpanel is trying to? I can't use up2date because I was told that would break cpanel and I don't know how to tell cpanel that it can find
the rpm its looking for at the above sites.

Any help appreciated,
