I've downloaded RPM's and followed the instruction in RHBA-2000:138-03

I get the following error messagers:

[root@msd deiss]# rpm -Uvh up2date-2.1.7-1.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
	up2date = 2.0.6 is needed by up2date-gnome-2.0.6-1
[root@msd deiss]# rpm -Uvh up2date-gnome-2.1.7-1.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
	up2date = 2.1.7 is needed by up2date-gnome-2.1.7-1
[root@msd deiss]# rpm -Uvh python-xmlrpc-1.2.1-1.i386.rpm
package python-xmlrpc-1.2.1-1 is already installed

Apparently, two of the three packages failed to install properly.  I don't
know where to get and how to install up2date 2.06 and up2date-gnome-2.17. 
I've looked around on your FTP site and can't find it.

The reason why I'm installing the upgrade to up2date is that it crashes
with script error messages.  I think a lot more work is needed on up2date.

rpm -Uvh up2date-2.1.7-1.i386.rpm up2date-gnome-2.1.7-1.i386.rpm

ie. these must on the same line if there are so called circular dependencies.
