Package Manager Does Not Work - Help please


I am using Red Hat Enterprise Server 5 and I cannot use package manager at all. I get an error very similar to this no matter what I try to apply.

Component: Software Manager
Summary: TB471250f2 grabber.py:1200:_do_grab:IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '//var/cache/yum/rhel-i386-server-5/headers/compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61.i386.hdr'

Can anyone please point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Do you have a RH subscription

If so, I'd suggest that you use the support you are paying for.

Have you tried using yum at all (from the command line)

Hey Bill, thanks for you response.

I actually did and it worked. It is not critical but I would like to know why it does not work from the GUI. After I updated I tried again from the GUI and got the same result. Ideas?

I don't know the answer - I hate GUI update/package tools and use command line on all my distros where possible
