The headers look good, but the dell-repository config in up2date contains 
%{dist}, which up2date does not understand:

An HTTP error occurred:
URL: 
http://linux.dell.com/yum/software/mirrors-%{dist}.txt/headers/header.info
Status Code: 400
Error Message: Bad Request

Is this the same problem I am having, or is it something different?

Thanks for the quick help!
Sander
