Because it uses the metadata, not the actual content of the factory tree
in order to find the packages, and your metadata are outdated.

Updating the metadata using the command

smart update

should help.

If not, it might be caused by your mirror setup. You have many mirrors,
some of them might be outdated, and smart picks one of the outdated
mirrors because the outdated ones are for obvious reasons faster than
the up2date ones.

Solution: Delete the mirrors and use this URL instead:

http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/SL-OSS-factory/inst-source

It's a redirector that points to up2date mirrors only.
