When I use CHECKRPMS to check for rpms, I get the message below.
When I run /usr/local/bin/check-rpms using another mirror, I get the
response that I need to upgrade:
RPM files to be updated:
What's the deal? Why is CHECKRPMS not working? Is it just those
particular mirrors below that continues not being available?
(lon-capa v. 1.0.2).

You may now wish to visit the /tmp/loncapa_rpm_updates directory and upgrade the RPMs.
If this is a critical server (it is currently being used for classes) and you do not know how to upgrade RPMs, you should consult someone who has experience with the "rpm" command.
