I make some trouble in install mod_ssl on my centos5.5.

when I type: yum install mod_ssl

Some wrong happened for:

Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: utterramblings. Please verify its path and try again

I tried to clean caches,

yum clean packages
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
0 package files removed

Then install again, still return the same error. I use apache 2.2.3, how to solve the problem? many thanks.

rpm -qa|grep httpd

You have an invalid repository named utterramblings which is preventing yum from working.

Disable or remove the repository (most likely from /etc/yum.repos.d directory) and then try again.

  • thanks, I removed it and works, need I move this file back if I finish install mod_ssl? – yuli chika Sep 12 '12 at 10:02
  • Don't bother, it's obviously broken. That guy's domain seems to have expired so he's probably not coming back. – Michael Hampton Sep 12 '12 at 10:03
