I'm trying to get my yum configuration to work again but it stops at the following:
yum update--verbose Config time:0.091 Yum Version: 3.2.22 Setting up Package Sacks Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
At the last line yum just hangs indefinitely. I noticed that there the http_proxy variable was not set and there is nothing in /etc/yum.conf that indicates a proxy but if I do set http_proxy using the following commands:
and then in /etc/yum.conf I set:
I get the following error when running the same command above:
yum update--verbose Config time:0.091 Yum Version: 3.2.22 Setting up Package Sacks Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=i386&repo=addons error was [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (111, 'Connection refused')> Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: addons
The contents of the directory /etc/yum.repos.d is
CentOS-Base.repo CentOS-Base.repo.rpmnew CentOS-Media.repo trixboxaddons.repo trixboxbeta.repo trixboxdevel.repo trixbox.repo
I also made sure that each of those repo files don't have https. How can I fix yum to update?
EDIT: It seems that I did not have a proxy running at a local machine. I removed the proxy information and yum gets stuck at loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile.
If I run the following command:
yum update --verbose --noplugins Config time: 0.085 Yum Version: 3.2.22 Setting up Package Sacks
and yum just hangs at setting up package sacks. I did an nslookup for google.com and it returns IP addresses which means my DNS should be fine. What else could cause it to hang?
