|Posted by: Masemo1234 May 1 2018, 10:20 AM|
I just switched from OpenSUSE to SL7. When i tried installing software with yum, every default repo returns a 404 Error.
I have internet connection and tried fixing my DNS config and adding a 3rd party repo but it didn't change a thing. I'm really stuck here and the only poster having a similar problem was running SL on a VM. This is what yum returns when i try to install anything:
When I try to open the linnks with a browser it also 404s. How do I fix this. is there a way to fix my repo list to sync with the most recent release default?
Thanks in advance

| Please try a simple test. From the command line become "root" --
sudo su -
Next, issue the following two lines and see what response is obtained --
yum clean all
Are you absolutely sure that you have a working connection to the Internet? From the command line are you able to --
ping -c 5 188.8.131.52

when i got into su shell I encountered the following error(how can root not have permissions to read or write in yum directory?)
I don't want to change any permissions that would make something integral like gpg keys insecure:
Still returns 404 for all repos +
Looks OK to me
Edit: This is my resolv.conf file:

Done that, the problem is still the same.
Thank you for helping me with this

| What you are experiencing is not normal for Scientific Linux. You have a working connection to the Internet yet something stopping access to named repositories.
To gain a larger audience and so that the Scientific Linux developers will see the problem, I think it would be best if you describe your current problem by posting to the scientific-linux-users mailing list.
