No packages marked for update message is returned when using yum with rhn_register

After registering redhat linux system for rhn, yum update command returned "No Packages marked for Update"

# yum update
Loaded plugins: downloadonly, security
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update

This is because of rhnplugin is disabled. "enabled = 0" has to bechanged to "1" in the /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/rhnplugin.conf file:

enabled = 0
gpgcheck = 1

# You can specify options per channel, e.g.:
#enabled = 1
#gpgcheck = 0

After that check yum repolist:
# yum -v repolist
