So I'm trying to install the epel repository and then also install the ius repository.

I'm managing this server with chef, and my run list goes

...
"recipe[yum::yum]",
"recipe[yum::epel]",
"recipe[yum::ius]",
...

And it installs the epel repository correctly, contents of epel.repo in /etc/yum.repos.d

# Generated by Chef for chef-test.midwestern.de
# Local modifications will be overwritten.
[epel]
name=Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux
mirrorlist=http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=epel-6&arch=$basearch
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-EPEL-6
enabled=1

and it shows as enabled for yum repolist all

but when I do this

rpm  -U /var/chef/cache/ius-release-1.0-10.ius.el6.noarch.rpm

It outputs this

warning: /var/chef/cache/ius-release-1.0-10.ius.el6.noarch.rpm: Header V4 DSA/SHA1 Signature, key ID 9cd4953f: NOKEY
error: Failed dependencies:
    epel-release is needed by ius-release-1.0-10.ius.el6.noarch

Ideas?

Install the epel-release package, obviously:

For the 6 series
