Make sure the oracle repo file is actually present in /etc/yum.repos.d. Update the yum metadata.
It doesn't help that the system is ancient. I doubt that any third-party repo is going to work with 4.7.
The other thing is lsblk is not a package. That program is part of util-linux package.

Did you read and understand the error you got? It told you it couldn't contact that particular website when you tried. Either it was down or you're had a network issue. Did you try to put the site into your browser, and see if it comes up??

And again, as AwesomeMachine said...your system is ancient. And as you've been told before, you should not be using RHEL or Oracle, unless you are PAYING FOR THEM. Have you contacted the support you're paying for?? And why even bother with Oracle's repos, when the lsblk utility is already part of RHEL?
https://access.redhat.com/documentat...lesystems.html

....so you can contact the RHEL support you're paying for, since it should already be in the RHEL repos.
