Fedora Linux core 4

I just finished upgrading my linux server from redhat 8 to fedora core 4 with not problem but when i run the command up2date i get the following error.

See /var/log/up2date

when i opened the log file i found one error and here is the description:

Your account does not have access to any channels matching (release '4' arch= '1686-redhat-linux')

i tried running up2date register, up2date -u and i keep getting the same error.

Can someone please help

I think you have to register yourself on the redhat site and then rigester your machine before you can use up2date, you could update with yum instead, issue `yum check-update` to review the list of updates and then issue `yum update` to actually update your system

I too run Fedora, but have never used up2date, only yum.
Which is better, do you have to pay to subscribe to up2date?

Only if you use more than a set number of PCs if I remember right.

I never liked up2date and have deinstalled it, I have always used yum.
