Error when trying to install snmpd on RHEL 5

Hello All,
I am new to linux .. I am trying to install snmp on my linux box so that I can monitor performance etc in solarwinds. However when I run the following command as root
# yum install net-snmp-utils net-snmp-libs net-snmp

I get the following error below:

[root@linux~]# yum install net-snmp-utils net-snmp-libs net-snmp
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Loading "security" plugin
Traceback (most recent call last):

raise up2dateErrors.SSLCertificateVerifyFailedError()

this is the OLD RHEL5
so you are using the current 5.11 ?

from that output it looks like you needed a newer python than is installed by default in the LEGACY hardware OS
( rhel5 is starting to show it's age - a generation of code old )

you can NOT !!! replace python !!!
-- a big no no !!!

now you can install in a "side by side" set up a second and newer version of python

but now you have a busted "yum" and busted "rpm"
the TWO programs you need to install software with

the program you need to use to fix it is broken

contact redhat tech-support
you will have to manually replace the version of python you installed with the version in the RHN updates

redhat tech support can walk you through this
