You encountered what I consider one of the biggest annoyances with
up2date.  You get notification about available updates, run up2date, and
the repository and/or mirror from mirrorlist has not gotten resynced..

So here are some possible actions that you can take:

1. Do not react immediately upon receiving an update notification. Wait several hours before trying so that the mirrors can sync up. 2. Disable the update agent. Perform updates manually or update via a cron job. 3. File either an RFE or a bug report in Bugzzilla, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/ .

4. Configure up2date to use a fast mirror for you rather than relying on the default mirror list. If up2date and rhn-applet are looking at the same mirror you won't have any problem.

Or change the RHn up2daet applet to reflect yum First grab gyum http://fedoranews.org/tchung/gyum/2.0/fc3/2.0-5/
then grab the applet http://fedoranews.org/tchung/gyum/2.0/gyum-applet/
right click the RHN applet and exit it then go to system tools and choose gyum-update alert icon

Unfortunately gyum doesn't work with repos defined in /etc/yum.repos.d (they have to be merged in with yum.conf) and so this isn't a very good solution for FC3.

Making yum, up2date, and rhn-applet all point to the same repo to avoid inconsistencies is a bit more awkward to set up, but it's a "cleaner" solution.
