Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

pretty self explanatory I'd have thoguht. One.Dev.Demo is not checking in for updates. Pretty strange name, but presuming it is a real system, check that the rhn service is running on it. You can run "rhn_check" directly to check in. Doesn't really look like it's RHN related though if you're not aware of any specfic changes to it. Ensure it's generally OK across the board first, has internet access etc.

Check RHN Satellite

Okay, I will do that.
so, I found it on the document how to check for the said service' status:
The Red Hat Network Daemon (rhnsd) periodically connects to Red Hat Network Satellite to check for updates and notifications. The daemon, which runs in the background, is typically started from the initialization scripts in /etc/init.d/rhnsd or /etc/rc.d/init.d/rhnsd.
To check for updates, rhnsd runs an external program called rhn_check located in /usr/sbin/. This is a small application that makes the network connection to RHN. The Red Hat Network Daemon does not listen on any network ports or talk to the network directly. All network activity is done via the rhn_check utility.
