Check networking, check name resolving.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

Thank you. it could be our firewall.
using dhcp dnf install works

To change an ip of a headless server I run:
#!/bin/bash
nmcli con mod enp0s3 ipv4.addresses 192.168.1.13/24;
nmcli con mod enp0s3 ipv4.gateway 192.168.1.1;
nmcli con mod enp0s3 ipv4.method manual;
nmcli con mod enp0s3 ipv4.dns "8.8.8.8";
nmcli con up enp0s3;
ip addr show enp0s3;

We then manually edit:
/etc/resolve.conf

Then we the dnf error.
I will not be able to work on this for about 5 days.

Now we are getting this error on the initial install:
Failed to synchronize cache for repo 'extras', ignoring this repo.
Andy ideas?
