I running as root the up2date --register and i am getting

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.

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

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

Answer: Upgrade to RHEL 5 or 6
