Need Help Applying updates in Redhat 9


Hello, I am using a demo subscripiton to Redhat network and it doesn't automatically install the updates. I have up2date running and it says that my computer is waiting for the updates to be applied. I am assuming that they are downloaded and ready to install but not sure as to where they are kept at on the system. Or how to install them. Any help would be greatly appreciated..
Thanks

first thing u have to do is goto this site and download the new ssl certificates for your rhn networl to work and apply updates, https://rhn.redhat.com/ theese r according to you RH version.

Once this has been done double click on the up2date icon and follow the steps asked once this has been done u will be able to see the updates been done.

Yeah i did that and when i run up2date it downloads them. but once downloaded it doesn't seem to install them on it's own it does say that the updates are downloaded but then it doesn't install them.
Any other ideas pleasee.

u may have to change the configuration for RHN it seems the way u have set it up is for it to download the files but not install them automativally u can change this buy going to the RHN and uncheck the checkbox to do this. Remeber this has nothing to do with the icon it should be found under one of the menus u have e.g Start here --> System............... etc etc.

If u have not changed the path try looking under /var/updates I think itīs there somewhere, if all else fails then try a find.

Hope this helps
