how to update rpm signatures for YOU to work?

I get an error message from YOU that says:
Signature check for patch info files failed. Cannot load patch information.

It does not list a specific package... the progress bar never gets started. The server list does get populated upon opening YOU though so that connection is successful. And from what I can tell from my Proxy servers log the connection attempts are successful. So at this point I can only assume I should take the error literally and update my signature files? Some google'ing returned some results where suse users had to do this but none had directions as to how. I am definitely still a linux n00b and I have no idea how to do this.

can someone give me some direction as to where to get the files needed and how to apply them?

I am using SUSE 9.1 Professional (purchased).

thanks for the reply. I downloaded and installed but am still getting the same error. Where can I get a list of other servers to try with YOU? maybe the list populated by default is out of date? Not sure.
