Here is what I get when I run up2date:

[root@msd deiss]# up2date -r -l
Successfully completed anonymous registration.  You do not need to use this
option in the future.

Retrieving list of all available packages...

Removing installed packages from list of updates...

Removing packages with files marked to skip from list...
There was a fatal RPM error.  The message was:
error reading from database
[root@msd deiss]#


I don't know how to fix this.....I don't know what caused this.....

Just for fun, I tried the Windows solution to this type of problem: de-install
up2date, re-install. Voila. It's working for me again.
