Redhat Network problem for updating

Redhat Network problem for updating

Redhat Network problem for updating

(OP)
Hey all,

I recently installed RH8 on a computer (it came with the book). The installation went very smoothly, but I get the following error when I try to connect to Redhat Network in order to update my system:.

Exception type SSL.Error

Exception Handler Information
Traceback (most recent call last):

    sent = self._connection.send(data)
Error: [('SSL routines', 'SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE', 'certificate verify failed')]

I was getting this error before with a different computer but I don't remember how I was able to get past it. I think it was something about a certificate. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Joe B
