Got errata email, but RHN web page says system up-to-date

Description of problem:
I recently upgraded system from 7.x to 8.0, deleted old system, registered new
one. I get email notification saying there are updates required, system shows
updates available, but RHN web page shows system is up-to-date, no updates
available. Running up2date updates system OK, but would like web page to work as
it had previously. New system has Demo entitlement. I was able to install
packages via the web page, but updates are never shown for my single system on
the web page.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Delete system from web page, remove systemid file, run up2date --register
2.Receive errata notification email
3.Check web page, says system is up-to-date. Icon on control panel shows updates
available, none ignored.
Actual Results: As in 3 above, system status always indicates up-to-date
despite email notification of updates required, despite up2date showing updates
Expected Results: Web page should show available updates/fixes for this system,
allow me to schedule updates online instead of having to manually update with
up2date. When this system was 7.2 (or 7.3?), worked properly. Now it is 8.0, has
not worked properly once. System name is ahedler3.
This could be sort of considered a security problem as it requires me to
manually run updates for any fixes needed instead of being able to schedule them
via the web page. In any case, it's a pain in the butt and should be fixed.
This is a known bug in the 8.0 up2date client - please run:
from the command line to update the package list. After that it will work
correctly. Closing as a duplicate of bug #83226
