well firstly up2date is VERY obsolete. you don't use it anymore, it's superseded by yum.

rpm is a package file type, and a command to directly install rpm packages. up2date was a tool that wrapped the rpm database / toolset to manage the installation of multiple packages based on various additional data, like security announcements from RedHat etc.

a please / thank you would be nice next time.
