I am trying to do a yum update and all of the mirrors fail with a 404. I put the url into my browser and the error is correct, the url does not exist. YUM is looking for a package that does not exist on the mirrors. See below for the error message:

I have tried running yum clean all That command finished successfully, but it did not change any thing. I have also tried the following:

rm -f /var/lib//rpm/__db*
rpm --rebuilddb

That also did not change anything.

Edit your /etc/yum.conf file and add

http_caching=packages

    may I ask why? What does this do? Has no explanation as to how it helps :/ – treyBake Sep 21 '18 at 9:26

The following also works:

yum clean all
yum makecache
yum update

I had a VM that hadn't been updated in a long while, and doing a yum makecache fast and yum update worked for me.

Ran below command and the yum install worked successfully after that:

yum clean all
