I would think that if both systems had the same sources / sources.list
for their up2date-yum/apt that it they would hold together. Otherwise, I
know up2date can be configured to 'retain' the rpm's it downloads and
installs and then you can use that to update the other. I would suppose
that yum/apt can probably do the same.
