Did an up2date -fu to get any new packaged from webqa.

The sat I was using was an upgrade from 510 to 520, and the cert upgrade I had tried after the upgrade failed. Due to that, I was not able to up2date the new 520 files. Fixed the cert, and the up2date and the new docs worked now.
5.2.0 Satellite is now GA, bugs Closed for Current Release.
