Error checking software selection when trying to install centos 7 on virtual machine.


When i use mirrors.sonic.net/centos/7/os/x86_64 as my installation source i am getting an error checking software selection. Please suggest a fix. I have tried different installation source but it doesnt seem to work.

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: Currently OpenMandriva. Previously openSUSE, PCLinuxOS, CentOS, among others over the years.

In the attachment(snapshot of oracle vm virtual box) there is an error in checking software selection. The rest of the fields have no problem in them. I have tried changing the intallation source but it does not work.

Thanks for the extra info;

Just to confirm I'm understanding you correctly; you are trying to install CentOS into a Virtual Machine?

If I'm correct;

I think a better solution would be to install it from a "local" source (eg. DVD/USB) and then try updating CentOS. Make sure you have the right networking options enabled for the Virtual Machine software, that your are using.
