how to tell yum not to update repo


when I tried to install any-package via yum. Its always try to update all repo, its very boring & waste of time.I want to do this manually when i have time, not automatically.

Is there any way to tell yum not to update repo before installing any repo.


I saw this post
, but its not helpful for me.

use

Code:
yum -C

options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-t, --tolerant be tolerant of errors
-C run entirely from cache, don't update cache

That means the stated package is not in your cache...you have to install without the -C option.
