Anyone else having issues installing cinnamon after last update? ii I try to install it says it's missing 'mint-y-theme', I've already reinstalled Cent OS 2 times, any tips on this issue?

Thanks!

Yes, I had the same issue yesterday. Yum couldn't find the package. I solved it by installing the rpm package for Fedora 26 (mint-y-theme-1.2.3-1.fc26 RPM for noarch).
In general I would not recommend installing any Fedora rpm packages in CentOS but this noarch package contains only graphics files which are copied into /usr/share/themes/Mint-Y-Dark

Cinnamon comes from EPEL so someone needs to report the problem on bugzilla.redhat.com in the Fedora EPEL section.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!

Thanks for the suggestion, I filed a bug report on bugzilla.redhat.com.

As I just replied in the reported bug, the problem has already been reported to Fedora release-engineering.

The package is now in the EPEL7 tree.
