up2date giving me errors

first off it is taking a really long time to run. why would I get an error? I took out the http because it would not save with a link.

[root@owner-0d4d0311f ~]# rpm --rebuilddb
[root@owner-0d4d0311f ~]# up2date --register
[root@owner-0d4d0311f ~]# up2date --install ocfs2-tools ocfs2console

Fetching obsoletes list (may take a while, be patient) for[/url] tos/4/updates/i386/...

There was an error downloading: /kernel-xenU-devel-0-2.6.9-55.0.6.EL.i686.hdr

if that fails too, then either your connection is down (you can't browse web etc.) or the server is down or the file isn't on that location or on the server at all anymore. Should there really be i386//headers with two /'s, is it a typo or is it all right?
