Question Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: epel. Please verify its path and try


Hi

I was try to run yum clean all and yum update and i got this:

Code:
Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: epel. Please verify its path and try again
I change at /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo the https to http links like:

Code:
[epel]
name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch
#baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/$basearch
mirrorlist=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=epel-6&arch=$basearch
to

Code:
[epel]
name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - $basearch
baseurl=http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/$basearch
#mirrorlist=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=epel-6&arch=$basearch
but nothing

Something is wrong with my time system clock or https ssl certificates i think as i have issues also using wget:

Code:
[root@server ~]# wget https://github.com/centminmod/centminmod/archive/123.08centos7beta01.zip
--2014-12-30 21:05:39--  https://github.com/centminmod/centminmod/archive/123.08centos7beta01.zip
Resolving github.com... failed: Temporary failure in name resolution.
wget: unable to resolve host address “github.com”
But when i exclude ssl certificate it works....

Also known nameservers on my dedicated server not working like Google's one and OpenDNS but one from Korea is working great (maybe due to timezone difference? )

Running this i am getting the correct time:

[root@server ~]# date
Tue Dec 30 20:45:39 EET 2014

But this is not ok:

[root@server ~]# hwclock --show
Tue 30 Dec 2014 08:53:19 PM EET -0.172121 seconds

as it should be 20:53 and not 08:53


Can anyone please help?


Thanks

It is helpful for others who find this thread later on to list your solution. Also given the amount of help you've gotten on LQ (see for example http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...fo-4175529360/) you should do so: that's called reciprocity.
