The application 'up2date' lost its connection to the display localhost:10.0;
most likely the X server was shut down or you killed/destroyed
the application.

i tried #up2date --nox and i get the temporary failure in name resolution.
i tried #up2date --nox -u and i get the same message " temporary failure..."

My first idea is to let you know that RHEL4 is end of life as of last year (Feb).

QUOTE:
After February 29, 2012, Red Hat will discontinue technical support
services as well as software maintenance services for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4 meaning that new bug fixes, security errata and product
enhancements will no longer be provided for the following products:

So there is no reason to be running up2date on RHEL4 system.

Answer: Upgrade to RHEL 5 or 6
