Description of problem:
Cannot use up2date
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to connect using up2date with the flashing !
2. When the system connects, it states I need a new version of up2date. I have
4.4.5-1, but it states I need 4.4.67-4
3. When I attempt to load up2date 4.4.67-4 from the channels menu, it states
that I need the up2date packeage that is required by up2date 4.4.67-4
4. The only up2date package I can locate is 4.4.67-4, which I can't load
because it requires the original up2date, which I cannot install.

If you choose to submit the bug report, please be sure to include
details of what you were trying to do when this error occurred and
details on how to reproduce this problem.
But I am unable to download and install the new up2date, it says I am missing
some dependencies (up2date-gnome) which I also cannot install.
Is there anyone here???
I'm having trouble understanding how you're seeing the issue in comment #1 if
the problem in comment #2 exists. I'm going to presume comment #2 is the main
existing problem at the moment.
Right now, RHN is not recognizing your /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid file as valid
Please re-register with RHN, either via 'up2date --register', or using rhnreg_ks.
That should give you a working /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid file.
Be advised that you may need to delete your original profile on
https://rhn.redhat.com/ to free up your entitlements for use with you new profile.
If you still have errors after that, please reopen the bug.
