up2date not working on new install

I have a FC4 box that refuses to run up2date no matter what I try. The error I am getting is ....

An error has occurred:
See /var/log/up2date for more information

the error log is -->

[Tue Nov 8 10:37:36 2005] up2date File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 1265, in ?
sys.exit(main() or 0)
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 328, in main
sources = sourcesConfig.getSources()
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/", line 263, in getSources
scfg = SourcesConfigFile(filename="/etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources")
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/", line 42, in __init__
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/", line 85, in load
File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/", line 229, in parseRepomd
File "", line 544, in baseurlSetup
File "", line 427, in check

I also tried up2date --configure to see if there was a option to change no luck.

Due to difficulties with up2date, most people using FC4 have moved to yum for updating/installation.


Your FC4 system is preconfigured to use yum and you can update it by running:

yum update

If you want to install a GUI interface to yum, run:

yum install yumex

Yum makes up2date look like a joke. Yumex might be a little slow but it's a great little program.
