getting utilities and updates for a fedora 6 system
We have a server running Fedora 6, and the update tools and facilities do not work.
When we run the "Add/Remove Software" utility, it goes to "Retrieving Software Information" and then reports "Unable to retrieve software information." Under details it says "None." Clicking this dialog away closes the whole program so there's no opportunity to look at settings or change anything if that's what is needed to get around the problem.
How can we get new tools and utilities for the system, or if this is no longer possible, how can it be safely updated to a newer version for which updates are still available? We're looking to minimize down-time here, just need one or two packages that didn't get installed by default.
