I can confirm this. (This is already on FC2, maybe also earlier)
This problem happens with CLI and TUI.

I don't know, what the

py_bind_textdomain_codeset("redhat-dist", "UTF-8")

really does, but other tools have something like

import locale
from rhpl.translate import _, N_, textdomain_codeset
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, "")
textdomain_codeset("up2date", locale.nl_langinfo(locale.CODESET))

adding this to up2date works for me

Note that FC1 and FC2 are no longer supported even by Fedora Legacy, and FC3 and
FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy only for security issues.  Please retest this
bug against a still supported version and retest.  If this still occurs on FC3
or FC4 and is a security issue, please reopen the bug and assign it to that
version and Fedora Legacy.  If it occurs on RHEL, please change to that product
and the appropriate version.

Note that up2date has been replaced by pirut/pup for FC5 and FC6, the only
fully-supported versions of Fedora Core.  Please test pirut for software updates
and file bugs as appropriate.
