I've not seen any issues doing up2date with my RH EL AS 3.

As an FYI up2date starts a GUI so you need to be running X Windows (Gnome or KDE).
Look at startx if this isn't running. I've often seen odd error messages when trying to start a GUI before I've started X windows (I use Exceed on my Windows Client to allow X windows (including up2date) to start there from my Unix/Linux servers.

You can also run up2date without a gui by passing the --nox option.

up2date -u --nox (To Update)
up2date -i --nox <package_name> (To install a package)
