I have this exact same problem with Fedora Test Release 3. My bug
report is #128078. I think this might have something to do with
SELinux ? But I am not sure.

I just installed FC3-test1 and got the same problem.
To me it seems a problem of a wrong PATH. If I give the command
"su" and than "up2date" I get the error message.

This error probably is the cause that I cannot launche up2date from the
Same problem on my end, doing the "su -" instead of "su" from the
terminal window solved the problem, so it must be an env issue.
