Could not retrieve mirrorlist

Post by jerryontime » 2019/04/13 03:55:02

Hi,

When I tried to use yum, it could not retrieve the mirrorlist.

[root yum]# yum install g++ liblz4-dev
Failed to set locale, defaulting to C
Setting up Install Process
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://repo.grid.iu.edu/mirror/osg/3.2/ ... ase/x86_64 error was
14: PYCURL ERROR 7 - "Failed to connect to 2001:18e8:2:6::110: Network is unreachable"
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: osg. Please verify its path and try again

I have tried everything online. The usual problems encountered by others is unable to get mirrorlist from the official website. But mine is related to a url that I even unable to reach in my browser. I have tried to change /etc/yum.conf and /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo according to online solutions but it still shows the same problem.

Can anyone help me please???

You need to either disable that repository or contact the people at iu.edu to have their repository fixed.

If you can't locate the repository config file, try grep osg /etc/yum.repos.d/*

This is not a CentOS problem at all, you are trying to access a 3rd party repository. Maybe also see this page if that's what you are trying to use.

Thank you.

I have removed content in the directory and run:

curl -o /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo http://mirrors.aliyun.com/repo/Centos-6.repo
yum makecache
