you are going to have issues with 6.4
it has been unsupported for almost two years

the current in the older 6 series is CentOS 6.6 ( 6.7 is do out soon )
and the current is CentOS 7.1

all the software repos for 6.4 were moved to the historical archive "The Vault" a long time ago

even the very last updates were moved to the historical archives
