I just set up a Centos distribution in a VirtualBox, it actually looks like everything looks fine so far. I can connect to the internet both with the browser and with my terminal (i.e. ssh and ping work).
The problem is that yum doesn't seem to find anything. When I do
Loadad Plugins: fastestmirror
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
After that nothing happens. Please note, that it is not frozen: The terminal cursor is still blinking, when I hit CTRL+C i get a "Exiting on user cancel"
At first I thought it was fastestmirror, so I tried
yum --disablepluging=fastestmirror update
which resultet again in the blinking cursor but otherwise there were no other progresses.
So what's my problem?
