Description Rolf Kyburz 2008-09-05 07:18:17 EDT
I'm rying to find out how our customers running RHEL 5.1 can possibly update their installation to current level. I installed RHEL 5.1, selecting ALL components, then ran the Software Updater utility (up2date, presumably); this downloaded the RPM headers, but then failed with the error message below. I know I can install 5.2 OK, but I'd like to find a solution for our customers that does NOT involve reinstalling the OS.

Component: Software Updater
