I have an old CentOS 6.2 machine and need to update a few packages on it (or many packages, I suppose).
However I can't do anything with yum because even after changing the repos to
vault.centos.org, yum spits out this error whenever attempting to download any packages:
[Errno 14] problem making ssl connection
The usual solutions to this error are "update openssl or certificate bundles" but of course I can't do that because that requires yum.
I have already tried using
sslverify=0 in the repo file and
yum.conf to no avail.
Is there a manual way I can update these so I can start using yum again?
