I am building a Yum repository to install RPM packages.

I am creating a folder mkdir -p ~/yum/el7/x86_64 and moving rpm file to it under same path given above.

Here is my my-app.repo file info.

name=My App

Here is the error I get when I install the package.

[root@ip-192-31-59-132 ~]# yum install my-app

I have the Gnupg configuration correct. I hope thats not the cause of this issue.

What am I doing wrong here? Why is Yum throwing Package does not match intended download error?

  • Did you you as suggested: Suggestion: run yum --enablerepo=my-app clean metadata. – Thomas Jan 13 '18 at 9:17
  • Yes. I did that. I even deleted /var/cache/yum – Mir Adnan Jan 13 '18 at 19:54
  • This seems to be an issue with meta-data – Mir Adnan Jan 13 '18 at 20:01
# yum clean metadata

and try again. Your client yum(8) has its own idea of the RPM characteristics, so ask it to check their repo value again.

  • I have tried this and yum clean all. Its something to do with metadata – Mir Adnan Jan 15 '18 at 4:07
  • There is something wrong with the package name too. Its show half of it my-app-1.3.15-2.el7.x8 – Mir Adnan Jan 15 '18 at 4:08
  • I am create a new folder and place the .rpm file under it. then running createrepo -v /path/to/rpm and then run it. It works fine. When I move it to S3 I have issues with Package does not match intended download errors – Mir Adnan Jan 15 '18 at 4:09

Hashed key of packages after downloading might not match with repository. Retry executing update after clearing metadata.

# yum clean all ; yum update
