I'm on a dedicated server with Root access. not familiar with servers. Im trying to install FFMpeg on my server. I'm getting errors can't figure out how to solve it. So any light on this will be very appreciated.

[root@ns335004 ~]# yum update
base                                                                                                           | 3.6 kB  00:00:00

 One of the configured repositories failed (DAG RPM Repository),
 and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
 safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:

     1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

     2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
        upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
        distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
        packages for the previous distribution release still work).

     3. Disable the repository, so yum won't use it by default. Yum will then
        just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it again or use
        --enablerepo for temporary usage:

            yum-config-manager --disable dag

     4. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
        Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
        so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
        slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice
        compromise:

            yum-config-manager --save --setopt=dag.skip_if_unavailable=true

failure: repodata/repomd.xml from dag: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

I also tried:

sudo yum clean metadata
sudo yum clean all

But still having same 404 Error.

Thanks.

That's the old DAG repository, which is essentially obsolete. You should remove it, either by removing the repository setup package you installed originally, or by setting enabled=0 in the repository's file in /etc/yum.repos.d.

The EL7 repo at ATrpms has builds of FFmpeg. They're pretty old, but probably suitable for most purposes.

If you want the latest and greatest, you may have to build it from source. It isn't especially difficult these days.

  • Thank you very much for the help!!... but on my /etc/ directory there's no yum.repos.conf file.... only this with similar names: yum.conf yum.repos.d Should I remove the yum.conf file?? thanks – Peter Nov 1 '16 at 0:30
  • @Peter: Sorry, I'm typing this while away from a nearby CentOS box, so I'm quoting file names from memory. You're looking for something like /etc/yum.repos.d/dag. Edit that file as root and change enabled=1 to enabled=0. Or, take the yum install command you used to install the repository and remove that package to remove the repository entirely. – Warren Young Nov 1 '16 at 0:33

    Alternatively you could just download a recent, already compiled ffmpeg binary if you want to avoid compiling. – llogan Nov 1 '16 at 17:39
