Retreiving packages for my i386 system running RHL7, using the GUI up2date
Traceback (innermost last):

up2date.CommunicationError: Error communicating with server. The message
Invalid Architecture and OS release combination

RPM along with binary package." is checked in rhn configuration.
this has been corrected in an errata release of update agent due out this week.
