This error: error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock (Permission denied) ... would appear to be you trying to perform an rpm -ivh ... command as a user other than root. You'll need to run it like so: $ sudo rpm -ivh yum.3.2.0-40-el6.centos.noarch.rpm Also make sure that you're in the directory where you happened to download ...

Yum and RPM are complementary package managers. Install Package You can install a package with RPM like so rpm -Uvh foo You can install a package with YUM like so: yum install foo An explanation of rpm flags: -i # Install, (will throw an error if already installed) -U # Update (or install if not present), usually preferred over -i -v # verbose ...

There is no real equivalent. However, if you do try to install some software and an older version already exists, you SHOULD be prompted to update it.

From https://forum.linode.com/viewtopic.php?t=8777 Changing el5 to el6 seems to do the job. su root cd /etc/yum.repos.d for FILE in *; do mv $FILE $FILE.old; sed 's/el5/el6/g' $FILE.old > $FILE; done yum clean all This fixed it for me.

That appears to be related to your local DNS actually: Couldn't resolve host 'mirrors.rpmfusion.org' Try using Google Public DNS resolvers: https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using Or set any of the IPs in your hosts file, that are displayed when you type: $ dig mirrors.rpmfusion.org @8.8.8.8 +short

Try running a yum update first. The ovirt-release.noarch.rpm did not include a RPM key and it's now complaining that there is no signing key available in your RPM configuration that can be used to verify the authenticity of the python-websockify-0.5.1-1.el6.noarch.rpm RPM. Poking around the ovirt website, I did find this page titled: oVirt Deployment ...

I had been struggling with the same problem on Centos6.4 x86_64. I got the following error : Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=6&arch=x86_64&repo=os error was 14: PYCURL ERROR 6 - "Couldn't resolve host 'mirrorlist.centos.org'" Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base So, I fixed it by these steps: ...

The problem on the CentOS 6 server I was working on was that EPEL 5 was installed I found this through the following command. sudo yum repolist I solved this through the following commands: wget http://mirror.umd.edu/fedora/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm sudo yum remove epel-release sudo rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm --test sudo rpm -ivh ...

The difference is in the architecture under which the openssl package was built. The i686 and x86_64 can coexist peacefully, but make sure you at least have one that matches your machine: uname -i works to be sure. Anyway, if you're using YUM, install the openssl.i686 one exactly by name if you want to keep the RPMdb happy. The thing is, you probably got ...

Updating an offline machine means finding a way to present the updates to that machine (this will most probably involve an external hard disk or USB stick, to move the files from online machines to the offline systems). In generic strategy terms, you have the choice between the three following solutions: Put the systems briefly online, behind some ...

Installing a shell could help. They usually require packages that are already present.

Some development package? Those just install header files, which don't do anything unless you try to actively use them. Some devel packages are quite big though. (E.g., installing the Linux kernel headers is going to be quite big!) Try something like, say, zlib-devel?

edit This package is not available in the basic repo. but in the forge repo. Though I still think it's a very good package edit You could just install a devel package like openssl-devel or glibc-devel those package only include header and will not hurt I would install htop it's a simple binary that enhanced the top command experience by 1000 it's less ...

Have a look into adding the EPEL repository to your RHEL build. EPEL is Fedora packages built against RHEL http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL I have not used this repo to install wine but do currently have it installed in my Scientific Linux 6 RHEL clone. If you are not familiar with install 3rd party repositories then you may want to have a peek at the ...

I might be mistaken but what I see is the same version ? you have openssl.x86_64 1.0.1e-16.6_5.7 installed and your openssl reports the same version : OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013

Your distro is a 64bit x86. the package i686 will not be available in your default repository and would be probably not compatible with the other package you have installed. You should install glibc for your distro. yum install glibc

I installed CentOS via Vagrant, and it came with the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory prepopulated with things like puppet.repo. Lo and behold, puppet.repo and other included repos did not point to valid resources. So I removed them and yum works now.

In case rpm subsystem works, you may consider to do following: Verify yum and rpm-python packages rpm -v --verify rpm-python rpm -v --verify yum You may try to restore permissions and owner for installed packages like here and here with: rpm --setugids {packagename} rpm --setperms {packagename} Or reinstall manually from mirror, like so: rpm -i ...

I found the following on a semi-related StackOverflow question; the answer I needed didn't actually quite answer the question there (and was not selected as the correct answer) so I figured I'd post it here for others to find easier. yum list installed PACKAGE_NAME This command returns some human-readable output, but more importantly returns an exit status ...

I would double check that these packages are in fact available on your system via whatever YUM repos you have configured first. I know that for starters the package bind_libs is actually called bind-libs. You should get output similar to this with a yum search "bind-". Example $ yum search "bind-" Loaded plugins: downloadonly, fastestmirror, priorities, ...

I wanted to compile tomcat with openssl support and openssl source code alone wasn't enough. Try installing openssl development libraries: yum install -y openssl-devel

This is not a problem with yum it seems but DNS resolution instead. It seems that the dns settings that you manually add to /etc/resolv.conf are overwritten everytime you boot your machine or renew network connection by network manager. A good way to find out is to check the first lines of the resolv.conf file. If you see something like "this file was ...

At last, after almost six weeks of frustrated, numerous, attempted solutions based on suggestions by kind friends and Internet question sites, I have solved the problem (I think -- I am cautiously optimistic). The underlying symptom was that yum install emacs failed with a long list of errors,. Now it has finally worked, without hesitation. I don't know why, ...

You have already provided the specific answer, but if you are looking for other executables or files to see what package they are installed with, utilize yum whatprovides *relative/path/to/file*, for example: $ yum whatprovides '*bin/dig' 32:bind-utils-9.8.2-0.17.rc1.el6_4.6.x86_64 : Utilities for querying DNS name servers Repo : base Matched from: ...

The dig command is a part of the BIND utilities so you need to install them. To install the BIND utilities, type the following: [root@localhost ~]# yum install bind-utils

What was wrong in my command line? Nothing. It did what you asked it to do -- removed iptables and, by inference, everything that depends on it. And everything that depends on those things and so on. As Kiwy points out, it is pretty reckless to run a remove -y without having first considered what might happen. I'm sensing some frustration in the ...

It seems that you don't register with RHN, so you missed base repo for Redhat to work. You can not get Redhat official packages without register. If you don't have RHN credential, you can use Centos base repo instead. See this link for more details.

It is not possible to filter by package size with --assume-yes, but you can query the packages by size with repoquery, and with some awk filtering, install just the files that have a download size with less than 1MB: yum -y install `repoquery --pkgnarrow=updates -a --qf "%{name} %{size}" | awk '$2 < 1048576 {print $1}'` What this command does: ...
