I recently started to have problems with rug update. I get e-mail messages
from Novell that there is updates available but i cannot see them when doing
a rug lu

Executing the command rug refresh hangs at 62% and I get the same result if
I try to activate OES again with command rug act.

There is no difference if I use the Red Carpet Client from YaST.

Running an update system that doesn't see any updates feels a bit scary.
Please help!
