I am trying to update yum but with no success. I have tried all existed solution and i cannot fix it This is the error I get

[root@localhost ]# yum update Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=7&arch=x86_64&repo=os&infra=stock error was 14: curl#7 - "Failed to connect to 2001:1b48:203::4:10: Network is unreachable"

 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. Run the command with the repository temporarily disabled
            yum --disablerepo=<repoid> ...

     4. Disable the repository permanently, 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>
        or
            subscription-manager repos --disable=<repoid>

     5. 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: base/7/x86_64

At first I did this but I got the same error

[root@localhost ]# ONBOOT=no
[root@localhost ]# dhclient
[root@localhost ]# yum update

Then I went to /etc/yum.repos.d/

vi CentOS-Base.repo

and then I removed # before the baseurl and save it by :x and enter

now I get the following error

[root@localhost yum.repos.d]# yum update

 One of the configured repositories failed (CentOS-7 - Base),
 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. Run the command with the repository temporarily disabled
            yum --disablerepo=base ...

     4. Disable the repository permanently, 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 base
        or
            subscription-manager repos --disable=base

     5. 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=base.skip_if_unavailable=true

I did use the following command too but the error was the same

yum clean all && yum clean metadata && yum clean dbcache && yum makecache && yum update -y

To check for the interent I did the following

[

root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/resolv.conf
; generated by /usr/sbin/dhclient-script
search dhcp.swmed.org
nameserver 199.242.236.1
nameserver 199.242.237.1

then I ping the first one and I recieve the folliwng message

[root@localhost ~]# ping 199.242.236.1

/etc?yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo is as follows

  • Looks like "no Internet connection". Can you start e.g. firefox OK ? ... The mirror list seems OK. ( I'm using one of those. Today it's mirror.netsite.dk/centos/7.5.1804/os/x86_64 ). – Knud Larsen May 17 '18 at 16:57
  • @Knud Larsen I am using the same machine to write here. so i do have internet. Can you please tell me how to use the link you gave me? – nik May 17 '18 at 17:01
  • The link is a mirror, like the mirrors in the mirrorlist link that you provided. If you put centos.ca-west.mirror.fullhost.io/centos/7.5.1804/os/x86_64 (which is the first mirror in the list you gave) and mirror.netsite.dk/centos/7.5.1804/os/x86_64 (the link Knud provided) in a browser, they both work, and the results are essentially the same. This shows the mirrors do appear to be working. DNS is also working (2607:f2d8:1:e::10), but for some reason your machine is unable to connect to it. Everything seems to be working up to the point of making the connection. – flerb May 17 '18 at 17:11
  • @trogdor my question is that where should I amend in order to use the link you provided? can you give me an idea how to update the yum ? – nik May 17 '18 at 17:22
  • Can you include the [base] section of /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo in your question – flerb May 17 '18 at 17:38

Set proxy information in the /etc/yum.conf, like this:

proxy=http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:1087
proxy_username=
proxy_password=
0

I am also facing same issues on CentOS 7.5, After doing all debugging, We found that Hardware Firewall is blocking Yum URLs.

After allowing the urls in firewall my problem has been resolved.
