When was package last updated?

feklee asked:

How do I find out when a certain package was last updated as part of a sudo yum update run?

System: Amazon Linux AMI, based on CentOS.

My answer:

You want yum history and its variants:

yum history packages-info openssl

will give you each transaction that included the openssl package.
