I have a GCP instance running Centos 7 and am trying to follow the instructions here to get vncserver running but I keep getting:

Maybe run: yum groups mark install (see man yum) No packages in any requested group available to install or update

when running the command:

sudo yum groupinstall xfce

The output when I run sudo yum group list is:

Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks

I've tried the instructions here as well, but it still didn't work. Any idea why I get this issue when it say Xfce is an installed group?
