Doing a yum update on C6.8 ……………..

Trying other mirror. To address this issue please refer to the below knowledge base article


If above article doesn’t help to resolve this issue please open a ticket with Red Hat Support.


The Red Hat explanation is blocked. All one can read is

” This issue generally occurs if client system is able to commun… Subscriber exclusive content”


(1) Should the Red Hat link be replaced by a CentOS one ?

(2) Why am I seeing a ‘SCL’ URL when I have not subscribed to Software Collections ?

(3) I did not get the error when updating other C6 installations around Europe, probably because they used different sources, so is the error caused by a faulty mirror file ?

Despite the error, I successfully installed

acpid x86_64 1.0.10-3.el6 base 37 k CentOS-release x86_64 6-8.el6.CentOS.12.3 base 21 k findutils x86_64 1:4.4.2-9.el6 base 447 k logwatch noarch 7.3.6-54.el6 base 303 k pango x86_64 1.28.1-11.el6 base 351 k passwd x86_64 0.77-7.el6 base 89 k wget x86_64 1.12-8.el6 base 484 k

Comments and advice welcome and appreciated, as always.

    The Red Hat reference in yum I am working on for a future update.

    The /SCL is old and has been replaced by the SIG version of software collections:

    yum remove CentOS-release-SCL

    yum install CentOS-release-scl CentOS-release-scl-rh

    Thanks, Johnny Hughes


  • –P9lsD1UGmQl3gnftobActually, looking at the repos, you only NEED *CentOS-release-scl-rh*
    (that is the actual replacement for what we were building) .. but
    *CentOS-release-scl* has other items you might also find helpful.


  • Thank you very much Johnny. I always deeply appreciate your considerable efforts. How can we clone you ;-)
