Message At a guess, your /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date config file is still
pointing at http[s]://xmlrpc.rhn​.redhat.com/XMLRPC for the
[noSSL]serverURL. You need to change that, or Current won't work, since
you're effectively trying to tell RHN to create a new channel named
${foo}. Obviously, RHN is going to give you the finger when you tell it
something like that...
