There isa problem at some ssl components on fresh Redhat 9. you must download the ssl components of redhat from the redhat9 up2date web page. if you read the page carefully you will see the attention and the download link.

I am also having this problem except it hangs up on downloading the headers. Just can't get past this. I've left the computer on for 24 hours and it says hung on downloading headers for XFree* files.

I've updated up2date to the latest version and this didn't fix anything.

problems too

I too am having problems with up2date on RH 9 and AS 2.1.

I get nothing back when I type in up2date. I have already got the new ssl certs.

Has the up2date server url changed?
