When I go to install mysql on CentOS 6,I get the following error:

yum install mysql mysql-server
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=6&arch=x86_64&repo=os error was
14: PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 403"
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base

I think I do not have Yum installed. Please let me know the corresponding steps.

I am also unable to install SSH on Ubuntu.

  • If you run cd /tmp; wget http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=6&arch=x86_64&repo=os, what is the output? – Warwick Aug 1 '14 at 7:31
  • The 403 error means that you are forbidden access to the server. You could navigate to the URL with your browser to see what you get. Also, are you running behind a proxy server? Try running yum clean all followed by yum upgrade. – garethTheRed Aug 1 '14 at 8:51
  • BTW, yum is definitely installed. You would have a file not found error or similar if it wasn't. – Warwick Aug 1 '14 at 11:49

It is clearly telling that 403 error that means it maybe a network fault of you that your centos server is not getting Internet Connection or CentOS Repos are down.
