Reposync error setting up repositories

Postby dawne » 2017/12/05 17:27:46

Hello everyone.
I've been using reposync to mirror the CentOS 6/7 updates on a regular basis. On 4 December, I tried to do a reposync, however received the following error:
Error setting up repositories. Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml).

Could there be a permission issue on the mirror.centos.org site?

I'm also trying to contact our networking and firewall team, to see if there were any changes that would cause this issue as well.

Thanks.

Disregard. I finally checked with the firewall team, and they were blocking all http/httpd from my YUM server. :roll:
