No, but the last two packages need manual updating because setup
considers the version on disk newer than the one offered.  At least for
perl-Carp there was a version override in place when upstream changed
their numbering scheme.

I think in this case the -f/--force-current option to setup would pick
up the correct version also.

Well, probably the easiest way to see if they're orphan packages is by
using the -o/--delete-orphans option to setup and check on the Pending
page which packages it wants to remove.
