As part of my test environment I'm running CentOS 6.6 in one VM and CentOS 7 in another. They are both relatively fresh installs, running Puppet.

However, when I run yum list man on the CentOS 7 box it searches the repositories and returns 'No matching Packages to list.'

When I run the same command on CentOS 6.6, it finds the man.x86_64 package.

Checked yum repolist and both have the CentOS Base, EPEL, extras, and updates repositories installed.

They are both minimal installations of CentOS.

This seems to indicate to me that the man.x86_64 package is not in the Centos7 base repository. Is this correct or an error in configuration?

yum whatprovides man

on my CentOS 7 machine shows the package is man-db

  • ...and verified. The naming must have indeed changed. Thank youuuu :)
