Description of problem:
I am using Severn and attempted to run up2date.  I downloaded the new rpm's for up2date.

In accordance with the Red Hat document at:


...I issued the command:

rpm -Fvh up2date-*

...but nothing happens.  On another machine running version 9 (non-beta), it works fine.

When I run the version of up2date I'm using (3.1.46), it attempts to register me.  Even though I select 'existing account', it asks for my personal information.  After up2date collects information about my installed packages, I click [Forward] twice.  Then I get an error message:

Problem registering username.

I got the same results with 'new account' instead of 'existing account'.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
up2date-  up2date-gnome-

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. as superuser, run up2date.
2. follow prompts.

Actual Results:  error message - Problem registering username.

Expected Results:  packages retrieved and installed.

Additional info:

Is Severn updateable?

try the up2date out of rawhide, the one on that page is
for 9 (though, it should work as well, but just to rule
out incompability issues)

up2date-3.9.26-2.i386.rpm and  up2date-gnome-3.9.26-2.i386.rpm
(or whatever version is there when you check, rawhide gets updated

I downloaded the up2date packages and attempted to install.  Package for rhnlib
was also needed.  I installed all packages and ran up2date.  It says my system
is fully updated and no new packages are needed.  I guess that resolves this
