Running Update Error Message

Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I have just finished installing once again FC4 since I screwed up with my last load...

When I try to run the up2date for red hat,

I keep getting this error message...

Do you know if the site down or something?

"There was a fatal error communicating with the server. The message was:

An HTTP error occurred:
Status Code:403
Error Message:Forbidden

Can someone tell me how to fix this problem?

 #yum install yumex
If succesfull!

 #yum -y update
