An out of the box configuration has at least these issues:

1. up2date itself substitutes "3" for $releasever in repository
definitions instead of "4", hence trying to use FC3 repos instead of FC4
repos (#161071)

2. rhn-applet simply doesn't support repomd metadata and so cannot tell
which updates are available with the default "repomd fedora" entry in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources. The
result of this is that it never shows the red "X" telling you your
system needs updating (#160873)
