yum install/update not working in centos 6.3 (redhat linux)


Dear Sir/Madam,

I am getting errors while installing any new tool or updating tools using yum.I am newbie to linux and don't know how to resolve it. I have tried with yum clean all, yum check and yum upgrade. But it didn't help to resolve the issue.

Command: yum install R

Error :

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base: repo1.ash.innoscale.net
* epel: mirror.cogentco.com
* extras: mirror.us.leaseweb.net
* updates: repo1.ash.innoscale.net
http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404"
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: home_fengshuo_zeromq. Please verify its path and try again

Could you please suggest me how to resolve this issue.

Thanks & Regards
Fazulur Rehaman

#1 while they are compiled from the same sources, CentOS is not RHEL: they use a totally different set of repositories. Your reference to both could be misleading. I assume you really have CentOS, or you would be asking Red Hat support these questions.

#2 why is there an OpenSUSE repository in your repo list? Someone had to add that, as CentOS is not normally or by default configured to pull software from repositories for other distributions. Why was that added?

Removing the non-CentOS repository would eliminate that error, but I would want to track down WHY it is there first and see if FIXING it might be better than REMOVING it.

There may once (year 2012) have been a CentOS repo for zeromq at http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...me:/fengshuo:/

Now an empty repo, not valid any more.

Thanks for your quick response. Sorry for confusion and it was CentOS 6.3.

I have removed non-CentOS repository and it's working now.

Thanks a lot for resolving the issue.

If you mean removing the "zeromq repo" : Yes.
Just delete the repo file. Not valid any more.
