This should be fixed in a hopefully soon to be released errata.
Versions of 3.0.40 or higher include a fix
Comment 2 Sean Sosik-Hamor 2003-03-27 11:09:12 EST
I get the same error for all of the RedHat 8.0 systems I manage however I've
found a temporary workaround.  If I run up2date -p after manually installing new
RPMs it will update the package list in my RedHat Network account.
