problem updating RH EL


Hi everyone! First of all I am a newbie in linux. I am running RH EL3. I was given a cd with the latest updates for the distribution and I tried to install them by typing
[root@localhost Updates]# rpm -Uvh *.rpm
or
[root@localhost Updates]# rpm -ivh *.rpm

The result in both cases looks like this:

error: File not found by glob: at-3[1].1.8-48.ent.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: comps-3ES-0[1].20040902.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: glibc-kernheaders-2[1].4-8.34.1.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: kernel-2[1].4.21-20.EL.i686.rpm
error: File not found by glob: kernel-BOOT-2[1].4.21-20.EL.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: kernel-doc-2[1].4.21-20.EL.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: kernel-source-2[1].4.21-20.EL.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: redhat-config-securitylevel-tui-1[1].2.9-2.i386.rpm
error: File not found by glob: rpmdb-redhat-3-0[1].20040902.i386.rpm
......


Can anywone give me some advice?

Thanks!

Don't know if this will help a whole lot but I googled it for ya and found this --> http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6617-0....ssageID=231566
the only other thing I can think of is to try to install the rpm's singly instead of wildcarding it.

10x, linux_terror! I've tried installing it without the wildcards but the result is the same. I will ask the person who gave me the update rpm-s. He probably will know what's going on.

I think you need to use the freshen (-F) flag and not the Update flag. You should be able to get away with
rpm -Fvh *
This will only update packages that you already have installed, so won't install any additional packages.
