Errors Running yum on RedHat 5 Enterprise Server

I was updating some third party RPMs on some old servers and I received an error from yum that ended like this:

up2date_client.up2dateErrors.SSLCertificateVerifyFailedError: The certificate is expired. Please ensure you have the correct certificate and your system time is correct.

The host was no longer set to tie into the RHN. Doing a yum info:

Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security

My hunch was that the rhnplugin was causing the issue. The solution was to run yum like so:

yum --disableplugin=rhnplugin   update
