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.
If do "su -" and "up2date" up2date starts normal.

This error probably is the cause that I cannot launche up2date from the
notifier window.

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.
