Also cannot up2date using root as opposed to user with sudo privilege.
Comment 2 Jon Ernstberger 2006-11-09 17:24:57 EST
Three machines not able to update at this point.  So far not affecting x86_64

Hi there, 
This sounds like a server side issue. I think you are configured to point to a
Satellite. Please contact the Satellite administrator for assistance to verify
that the package is available for download on the Satellite. 

If you are using the RHN Hosted service (rhn.redhat.com) - then please try
again. I am not aware of any issues with downloading this kernel package in the
pass, but checking today it seems to be fine. 

If you continue to encounter issues then please contact your Red Hat Support
representative. If you are a student of a local university, then it is also the
general case that no support is provided by Red Hat for the Enterprise Linux OS,
and only for the RHN Proxy or Satellite being used and that your local
university is providing some level of support for the Enterprise Linux WS OS.
