Well lets see what your OS is.

Is it Redhat enterprise Linux?
What is the contents of your yum.repos.d/<Base> file?

Are you on a network with a proxy or other blockage (such as a firewall) between you and the Internet.

a bit odd for a base url
it should look something like this ( for sl6 )
ftp://ftp.scientificlinux.org/linux/scientific/$releasever/$basearch/os/


seeing as the only thing in that ftp page is one folder called " en"

is this a registered and licensed install of RHEL5.????? point what 1,2,3,4,5,6

also please post the FULL output of this
Code:
yum repolist all

that web address is an EXAMPLE for ScientificLinux6 !!!! -- please READ the name in that link!!!
and NOT RHEL5

your ftp is MISSING " ...... $releasever/$basearch/os/ "
that part

if need be call ( yes on the phone) your paid for red hat support
the support YOU DID buy with the REQUIRED license
for the server
https://www.redhat.com/apps/store/server/
for a desktop install
https://www.redhat.com/apps/store/desktop/

Quote:
when i do yum list it shows all the installed rpms
That is NOT the command i posted I DID NOT POST "YUM LIST" !!!!!
i posted
Code:
yum repolist all
REPOLIST !!!!!!!!!!!!!

it outputs a list of all on and off installed software repos .
contact your paid for red support
https://www.redhat.com/support/

"debuginfo rpms."
that output from "yum repolist all" would have shown that the debug source is turned on

that is NOT urgent
contact red hat
buy a REQUIRED license
and activate your install - also required
and add rhn to the yum repository - also required



PS.
is this still the same laptop and the same old rhel5.0 ( current is 5.6)
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...roblem-889358/
or
the 5.4 install here
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ocally-890007/

on July 1 it was 5.0 on July 5 it was 5.4
today it is 5.?

You have installed a Redhat version of Linux and you need a license.

You must

EITHER

1) Follow John's advice and activate your licensed version of RH5

OR

2) Install Centos which is likely to all of what you want out of the box.
