Description of problem: Due to the SSL certifiate expiring, Red Hat was kind
enough to provide updated RPMs for up2date and up2date-gnome that give a new
certificate, so operations can continue with/to RHN. The solution fails to work.
Unfortunately, the filenames chosen:
... do NOT upgrade via "rpm -Uvh". The rpm command simply exits with an exit
status of 0. BUT, If one renames them to the same names without the brackets:
... THEN rpm -Uvh WILL upgrade the existing up2date and up2date-gnome packages.
looks like a web bug , apparently fixed already
Doesn't happen anymore, assuming it really was fixed.
