So you have no up2date problem. Your problem is you are not connected to the internet.

Once you have that working you should be ok.

appendix 2

Now up2date worked. After being silent for a long period, it said my account with RHN was disabled. I enables it and it started downloading these 69 updates. So I have functional up2date at the moment I guess, but I'm left with the intermediary problems:

1- Why https is not working?
2- Why RPMs does not install from command prompt although they do from GUI?

No Error Message

Nothing, after trying for a minute to an https in Mozilla, it says time out. And RPMs don't install from command prompt, the prompt just return as if you only pressed enter.

what's your firewall settings?

have a look at /var/log/messages


For the rpm problem try this

rpm --rebuilddb

Not yet

I didn't set any firewalling on this machine. But however, how can I check if there is any filtering through command prompt?

I rebuild the rpm database, still rpm from command prompt is just like pressing enter.

I have a new test machine, the https in browser worked but rpm does the same ignorance.

I'm thinking to get a new RPM software, what do u think?

Regarding var/log/messages, it does not contain any "443" or "https" string.

IPTables

If this manipulates IP Routing Table on the machine, I am scared to try it. This machine is a squid proxy with ISA2000 as parent. I had bad time convinving it to work.

Quick question about up2date (GUI) applying an RPM...

I just installed RH9 and am applying the updates. Update agent says that I need to install redhat-config-printer-0.6.47.11-1 and have redhat-config-printer-0.6.47-1 installed. When I click next, it attempts to resolve the pre-reqs etc. and determines that redhat-config-printer-0.6.47.11-1 is already installed. What's up with this?

Don't know but you should try upgrade first

rpm -Uv filename

if you want to you could force it with this

rpm --force -iv filename

Ok, here's a question that I have, and it's totally bugging me.

I recently reformatted my system, tried some other distributions, played around, and in general did non-Red Hat things.

However, I'm back to RH9, and I can no longer up2date!

rhn_register forces me to make a new account, which I don't want to do.

There's no setting for this in up2date --configure either. The closest thing I can find is the rhuuid. But rhn.redhat.com doesn't have this information for me.

Assistance? Thanks.

If this is being done in X, that is the problem, I'm currently doing this over putty (I'm at work), and even if I do it at home, I don't have XFree installed yet.

[edit]
Stupid question, stupid answer.
Putty had been jumbling the text (moving it around), and I forgot to verify my password, that was the only thing stopping me from loging in.
Sorry!

Several files with errors

When downloading with up2date I get gpg errors with several files. Hard to believe that so many files are corrupted on the RedHat site. It is mostly with the large main files. kdecommon - xfree86 etc.
What is the best procedure to follow to fix this?

If your using RH 8 I believe it's about to be or already is no longer supported anyway.
