YUM Could not update.


Hi All,

Recently, I am encountering some difficult in Yum Updates. So far, I am trying to update and it kept giving me a lot of timeout:<urlopen error timed out.>

I am behind a fortinet 60 firewall but it has open port 3128 specifically for yum updates.

Sorry everyone, being a newbie, I figure I should post the whole situation rather than painting a vague picture. Apologize for this long post but any help would be great if I could get yum to work.

[root@www ~]# yum clean all
yum clean metadata

Oh.. I forgot to let you know whats in /etc/yum.repos.d directory.

--- Centos-Media.repo ---
# CentOS-Media.repo
#
# This repo is used to mount the default locations for a CDROM / DVD on
# CentOS-5. You can use this repo and yum to install items directly off the
# DVD ISO that we release.
#
# To use this repo, put in your DVD and use it with the other repos too:
# yum --enablerepo=c5-media [command]
#
# or for ONLY the media repo, do this:
#
# yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=c5-media [command]

---Centos-Base.repo ---
# CentOS-Base.repo
#
# This file uses a new mirrorlist system developed by Lance Davis for CentOS.
# The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
# update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and
# geographically close to the client. You should use this for CentOS updates
# unless you are manually picking other mirrors.
#
# If the mirrorlist= does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the
# remarked out baseurl= line instead.

If you use a proxy at port 3128 (3128 is typically the port for a proxy server), you need to configure yum to use it. If you fortinet is just a firewall, it should have port 80 opened, not 3128, as the yum servers are approached through the regular http port (80).

If you would try to do a 'wget http://centos.syn.co.il/5.6/os/i386/...primary.xml.gz' on that machine, does that work?
if not, does 'host centos.syn.co.il' work?

also you have the install dvd ( the media) turned on
turn it off
that will stop one of the errors you get
Quote:

[c5-media]
name=CentOS-5 - Media
baseurl=file:///media/CentOS/
file:///media/cdrom/
file:///media/cdrecorder/
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1
set that enabled to 0 zero

also the best way to find out what reop is on or of or installed or not installed is with " yum "
Code:
su -
yum repolist all
see
Code:
yum --help
man yum

Coming from a Newbie, I stand corrected [if any mistakes I say]..

I check on the mirrors-rpmforge located in /etc/yum.repos.d.

The mirror list inside there is so old. Check everyone of the link and error crops up.

http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/$ARCH/dag
http://archive.cs.uu.nl/mirror/dag.wieers/redhat/el5/en/$ARCH/dag

http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/$ARCH/dag

Are there any new list which I should try for Centos 5.2?

centos 5.2 is unsupported Cent only supports the current minor version
CentOS 4.9 , 5.6 and 6.0 ( soon to be 5.7 and 6.1)
have you read the wiki
if you are behind a router firewall you need to configure yum to use it
and or open ports
http://wiki.centos.org/
also the red hat documentation
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/...erprise_Linux/
and the fedora wiki
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Project_Wiki

keep in mind that like RHEL cent and scientific linux are not designed for the desktop .
they can work but it is NOT the best OS for that use

you need to run an update to get to 5.6 ( best bet is a new install cd ( the first 2 or of the 5 should do )

Hi John,

Thanks for the prompt reply

Just out of curiosity, If I were to upgrade using the disc, will it be a clean install or just an upgrade patch?

I start to shiver when I always hear upgrades..

the redhat minor upgrades almost always work flawlessly 5.5 to 5.6 BUT going from 5.2 to 5.6 ?
" yum upgrade "

should do it but ?

Or you could use the 5.6 install dvd to " upgrade an existing install"

seeing as i take it firefox passes through the router but "wget" and "yum" do not
it is looking like ports are closed
