up2date's built-in helptext do not match its actual behaviour...
[root@localhost /root]# up2date
You are not registered with Red Hat Network. To use Update Agent,
You must be registered.
However, you can continue now with an anonymous registration, and only
your Red Hat Linux version and computer architecture will be sent to
redhat.com. You are free to use the rhn_register later to take full
advantage of the benefits offered by the Red Hat Network.
To register anonymously, specify "--anonymous" as a command line option.
Your GPG keyring does not contain the Red Hat, Inc. public key.
Without it, you will be unable to verify that packages Update Agent
are securely signed by Red Hat.
Your Update Agent options specify that you want to use GPG. Aborting.
[root@localhost /root]# up2date --anonymous
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 382, in ?
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 263, in main
print "Error parsing command line arguments: %s" % msg
This is fixed in an errata release, to be released shortly.
