    I am posting in hopes this will help some one.

    I have several RHEL 4 boxes, and not all of them have an active entitlement on them for what ever reason.

    Using the updater from the Plesk UI caused several problems - mostly in that the updater attempted to use up2date instead of YUM which was also installed on the system.

    I contacted plesk to see if they could solve the problem and have the updater correctly use yum instead of up2date - thus allowing me to update the system.

    here is their response:

    Once I did this and followed those instructions I was able to upgrade my system from 8.1.1 to 8.2.0 with out problems.

    I should also note that it is a known issue that if your admin PW has a pound sign in it that it will also cause plesk updates to fail. I ran into that one before and had to remove plesk altogether on that machine due to a faulty upgrade that left plesk broken afterwards :s

    Hope this helps some one.
