Welcome to the forums!

I think the error message is fairly self-explanatory. You must contact Red Hat sales and register your product.

https://access.redhat.com/home

If you do not intend to pay for Red Hat then please use one of the many fine free-of-charge distributions such as CentOS (which is basically the same code as Red Hat), Fedora, Slackware, Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, etc.

Thanks snowpine,
Do I have to purchase redhat before any such installation??
When i first looked at the error the same thing comes in my mind as well. but while searching i've come through this thread
yum update is not working
and thought that it could be solved without registering my system.

Is that not possible??

I suppose there might possibly be work-arounds to make an unregistered Red Hat system somewhat usable, but it is really not something I would recommend, especially for a beginner. Is there a particular reason you don't either 1) register your system, or 2) use a non-commercial free-of-charge distribution (like CentOS)?

It's not a problem to register your system after installation...call Red Hat, and they can help you.

Possible? Yes. A good idea? No. You're using RHEL...unless you pay for it, you will NOT get updates/patches/bugfixes/security updates, and will be left with an insecure, out-of-date system. If you DO manage to use a third-party repository, there is NO GUARANTEE that that software will be 100% certified to work correctly with RHEL. It *MIGHT*...and it might not. Might work 98% of the time, and introduce hard-to-fix problems the other 2%.

So...pay for RHEL, or use CentOS for free.

Just use CentOS. CentOS is the source code from RedHat recompiled without the logos so it's basically the same thing without the need to register your system. If you're not working in an enterprise environment that requires RedHat right now then there's no need to pay for it and the headache of trying to implement a workaround with limited knowledge of linux is not worth it when somebody has already done it for you and renamed it CentOS.
