Using TID 10097537 I have been able to activate OES and update it using
the rug commands.

I'm confused about the updates. TID 10097537 states, "OES should only be
updated with the rug pin command. Do not install updates that show up in
the channel. The updates showing up in the channel is a side-effect of
how the patches are implemented on the server. Again, never install
updates, only patches".

Does this mean I should ignore the updates that show up in the update tab
in Red Carpet (or the updates that show up using rug lu)? It's hard to
leave something that is classified as "Urgent" in Red Carpet off the
system and still feel that system is secure.
