I try to dowload
virt-viewer package with all dependencies on Centos 7. I am using yum instead of yumdownloader:
yum install --installroot=/tmp/ --downloadonly --downloaddir virt-viewer virt-viewer
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks One of the configured repositories failed (Unknown), 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 <repoid> 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=<repoid>.skip_if_unavailable=true Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: centosplus/$releasever/x86_64
I tried without and without
echo 7 > /etc/yum/vars/releasever or uncommenting
baseurl in my
etc/yum.repos/ repos without any success.
yum update and
yum downloader both work so I guess I am a DNS resolution.
