I've a VM running Centos 5.5 and I'm trying to get yum to update via a company proxy.
I can browse the web within the VM using the proxy setting , but I cannot get yum to use the proxy.
I'm getting the following error:
[Errno 14] HTTP Error 302: The HTTP server returned a redirect error that would lead to an infinite loop. The last 30x error message was: Found Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base
I've setup the proxy=http://my-proxy:8080/ and proxy_username= and proxy_password= in my /etc/yum.conf to the same values I'm using in firefox on the VM - which is working.
/etc/yum.repos.d has not been changed.
The proxy presents a web page upon initial 1st use of the proxy, asking for username and password. I think this could be causing the issue, is there any way yum can deal with this ?
