Hi all,

Does anyone know why when I run the following command, I get thousands of packages in the output, saying they’ve been excluded?

[root@server yum.repos.d]# yum –security check-update | less Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: mirror.removed.com

Any other server I run this on *only* outputs the packages that need to be updated? This is a CentOS 7 VM.

One thought on - Yum –security Check-update

  • CentOS does not provide information to use the –security switch. We can’t provide that information because it is not open source and it is copyright.
