CentOS 7 Comments

I think my software updates are not working. I know a Firefox update was announced yesterday but when I try sudo yum update I get a message saying that no packages are marked for update. I tried sudo yum clean all but I still get the same response. Any suggestions?

  • It appears I have Firefox 28. I though the update was for Firefox 31. The output of yum info firefox follows.

  • The announcement was from Mozilla, not CentOS. CentOS 7 has been released, so there’ll be no enhancement related updates which includes FF 31.

    You need to use a different repository if you need the latest.
