I got this issue on an FC8 server where if I search for something in yum, it finds the packages I am searching for but then when I go to install the package it says its not there...?
[hamstar@tankian ~]$ yum search pecl php-pecl-apc.i386 : APC caches and optimizes PHP intermediate code [hamstar@tankian ~]$ sudo yum install php-pecl-apc.i386 Setting up Install Process Parsing package install arguments No package php-pecl-apc.i386 available. Nothing to do [hamstar@tankian ~]$ sudo yum install php-pecl-apc Setting up Install Process Parsing package install arguments No package php-pecl-apc available. Nothing to do
EDIT: Yum update shows this:
[hamstar@tankian ~]$ sudo yum update Setting up Update Process No Packages marked for Update
EDIT: I also tried this and tried it all again with no luck:
[hamstar@tankian ~]$ sudo yum clean all Cleaning up Everything
EDIT: So i just realized this package is installed, but replacing the package name for pyqt (and variations of) which is not installed gives the same results. Here is the output for a package that is already installed on my other FC8 server.
[root@dolmayan ~]# yum install php Setting up Install Process Parsing package install arguments Package php - 5.2.4-3.i386 is already installed. Nothing to do
In Alex's comment down there he said go to this fedora wiki page so I did and followed the commands:
wget http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/fedora-release/8/6.transition/data/signed/4f2a6fd2/noarch/fedora-release-8-6.transition.noarch.rpm su -c 'rpm -Uvh fedora-release-8-6.transition.noarch.rpm'
Got the key from here emptied the old gpg key and pasted the new one into it.
su -c 'echo > /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-8-and-9 sudo vi /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-8-and-9
Then I ran:
su -c 'rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-8-and-9'
