Have you tried using a different username ?

You can always take a look at the alternatives to Up2Date.

I have tried other usernames, they don't work either.

However, I purchased the "basic" license through Redhat, so I would like to eventually get up2date to work. Unless, that is, that the alternatives to up2date do the same thing for free. Please let me know.

If you purchase a license from RedHat, then you should have received an account including a username and password.
I suggest contacting RedHat, your license also includes free technical support.

Yes, the alternatives perform in the same manner as Up2Date.

Something tells me that the SSL failure is the root of the problem. Any ideas or suggestions?????

Had the same problem with the "SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify
failed".
The problem was a too large time difference with the server.
Use NTP-server to adjust time and sync with "clock.redhat.com"

You are getting this error because you have not updated your up2date.

Go to rhn.redhat.com and make an account, then go and download the new version. Follow the installation instructions then try to update, it shouldnt give you any problems
