What version of mrepo? There was a problem at one time where rhns:///
evaluated to something that came from the up2date configuration, which on a
CentOS box was not a redhat rhn server (go figure...).

You might check that, as well as making sure the the line 

up2date default

is uncommented in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources

It is commented by default on CentOS boxes and is required for mrepo to work.
