[TriLUG] rsync question

What I want to do is have my own in house mirror of Fedora and eventually
WhiteBox El. Here's what I've tried:
rsync -avz --delete
I get a message:
that the files could not be transferred. I don't want to rsync the whole
mirror do I? I only want to mirror the updates.
Any suggestions on this would be great.
