urpmq will search all available media unless you force it to use a specific 
media with --media  or restrict it to update media with --update

It may be your 'main' source is not configured properly or maybe you are just 
being misled by the way urpmq will return a limited list if there is a close 

Compare for example what is returned if you do :-
urpmq samba
urpmq samb
urpmq --fuzzy samba
