red hat update agent

when I start the red hat update agent, he says everytime "problem registering username". why is this? I have a working internet connection and I did what he said. The privacy statement is empty in the update agent, why? what can I do?
I have red hat 9 with the gnome environnement.

If you are using the update agent that is installed with RH9, you need to update it. Even when RH9 was new (many moons ago), it needed updating to fix it.
