I'm pretty new to this myself and have been playing with up2date for a
couple days trying to get everything updated.

If you seach the Mailing Lists (eg. fedora-list) you may find some
information in some of the threads as I did.

Check the configuration of up2date: up2date --config.  Part of the
configuration is the location and use of the key.

check the sources file to ensure that you have sites listed to download from
in the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources file

Myself I found I had better luck by supplying a mirror that was close by to
download the updates from.  Lots of good information on the Mailing lists on
how to set the paths etc.  Also found that things worked better if I cleaned
out the /var/spool/up2date/ directory, especially when I switched to a

Suggestion:  there is a high volume of mail on this list so that your
message doens't get missed your subject line should be directly related to
what you are asking about like up2date.

Good Luck.
