I’m trying to get my yum configuration to work again but it stops at the following:
yum update--verbose Config time:0.091 Yum Version: 3.2.22 Setting up Package Sacks Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
At the last line yum just hangs indefinitely. I noticed that there the http_proxy variable was not set and there is nothing in /etc/yum.conf that indicates a proxy but if I do set http_proxy using the following commands:
and then in /etc/yum.conf I set:
I get the following error when running the same command above:
yum update--verbose Config time:0.091 Yum Version: 3.2.22 Setting up Package Sacks Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=i386&repo=addons error was [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (111, 'Connection refused')> Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: addons
The contents of the directory /etc/yum.repos.d is
CentOS-Base.repo CentOS-Base.repo.rpmnew CentOS-Media.repo trixboxaddons.repo trixboxbeta.repo trixboxdevel.repo trixbox.repo
I also made sure that each of those repo files don’t have https. How can I fix yum to update?
EDIT: It seems that I did not have a proxy running at a local machine. I removed the proxy information and yum gets stuck at loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile.
If I run the following command:
yum update --verbose --noplugins Config time: 0.085 Yum Version: 3.2.22 Setting up Package Sacks
and yum just hangs at setting up package sacks. I did an nslookup for google.com and it returns IP addresses which means my DNS should be fine. What else could cause it to hang?
There’s no proxy server running at the address you provided. Use the correct URL for the proxy server, or start the proxy server.
