I have installed a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 on VMWARE. I am unable to find any repositories. I want to perform the following

-> yum groupinstall virtualization "virtualization client" "virtualization platform" "virtualization tools"

But Linux returns me an error that no packages exist.

Is there any way I can download all repositories from torrent or something & install it?

  • Is your domain lookup working properly?

  • @DanPipe What happens if you split the commands and do this yum groupinstall "Virtualization" -y && yum groupinstall "Virtualization Client" -y && yum groupinstall "Virtualization Platform" -y && yum groupinstall "Virtualization Tools" -y

  • May I ask why you installed RHEL 6 (from 2010) rather than RHEL 7 (from 2014)? The package groups you are looking for might not be available on your older release. You could also try installing the EPEL repositories (fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL).

You should try again with the proper casing for the package groups:

 yum groupinstall Virtualization "Virtualization Tools" "Virtualization Platform" "Virtualization Client"
  • Still didn't work. Error "No packages in any requested group available to install or update"
