I suppose it is RHEL 5 and you are using satellites?

the ssl cert has expired.  Goggle how to configure YUM to not use ssl cert there was a write up for it as I had to do it just a little while ago but can't find notes on the file to edit so that it doesn't update using ssl connection.

Sadly if your subscriptin has expired you are not entitled to run your system anymore. Redhat Licence is readable without subscription...

Hello Dave,
this is why I didn't help you any further, too.  If your subscription is expired, you cannot use the RHEL repos with or without satellites any more. Either renew your subscriptions or convert your installations to CentOS:

You can also convert to oracle linux http://public-yum.oracle.com/ (Especially good if you would like to have certified platform for their database...)
(Actually it is a minor patch that extends that certificate, and $ends a warning message IF you are a subscriber)
