Keeping my server up 2 date


Hello peeps

I've inherited a redhat 8.0 box with linux kernel 2.4.18

I've tried running up2date but get this message after installing the key I was advised to like so.

rpm --import /usr/share/rhn/RPM-GPG-KEY

Here's the error I get when I run up2date

There was an SSL error: [('SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify failed')]

I need to get this box upgraded, can anyone tell me how to resolve that issue, or sugget another way to keep this box up to date?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Additionally, I would recommend long term migrating that server to a new OS. Red Hat 8 was released in 2002, RH9 in 2003. In late 2003, standard Red Hat ceased to exist and became Fedora. There hasn't been an update to RH8 since 2004. So most likely, there probably isn't any updates for your server. That system is at serious risk. If you like Red Hat, I would recommend looking into CentOS.

Good luck,
