Unhappy Installing thru Add/remove software


I have installed Linux 6 image on 2 machines.
On first machine I can install software like 'kernel-doc' 'vsftpd' 'apache' from add/remove software.
On second machine displays "No results were found . Try again with different search term'.

Not sure with repositories.

What to be done on second machine so that I can install 'kernel-doc' 'vsftpd' 'apache' from add/remove software ?

Please advice.

please post the version
that would be the output of this
Code:
cat /etc/redhat-release
the current in the older 6 series is rhel 6.6

this is the NOT up to date 6.0 and not the CURRENT 6.6

so you are paying Redhat EXTRA for locking it at 6.0
--- that is a LOT of cash you are paying redhat every year

you might want to use what that EXTRA support provides

seeing as this is at least two servers
you ARE using the redhat satellite program ? right

make sure that both servers are using the same repo file for the on site satellite server you are using
