From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
up2date and redhat-config-printer both fail with the following on a system
upgraded to redhat 8.0. the system formerly had RH 7.3 and before that, Skipjack
and 6.2 and probably others.

I don't remember how the upgrade from Skipjack to 7.3 was accomplished, but the
machine had been working fine subsequently...

[root@spaceheater RPMS]# up2date -u
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 18, in ?
    from up2date_client import up2dateMessages
  File "/usr/share/rhn/up2date_client/up2dateMessages.py", line 12, in ?
    from rhpl.translate import _, N_
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/translate.py", line 197, in ?
    cat = i18n()

    self.setDomain(domain)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/translate.py", line 134, in setDomain
    self.iconv = iconv.open(self.codeset, encoding)
ValueError: (22, 'Invalid argument')
