All I can say is that's not what I found.
I did the up2dateing from KDE, waited for the icon to go red and clicked
I was asked for my root password and away it went.
As I said it took me a few goes to get to lines in the 2 files correct.
pasted below are the lines I ended up with.
these two from /etc/yum.conf
these two from /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources
The lines have wrapped a bit funny but it should Make sense.
The ogigionals I left in but #ed the out.
May be some other kind person can comment on your root problem.
