I am attempting to install MongoDB on CentOS 6.5. I believe I am following the instructions precisely step-by-step, but continue to get the error No package mongodb-org available after issuing the command sudo yum install -y mongodb-org.
Following the instructions here: http://docs.mongodb.org/master/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-red-hat/?_ga=1.140464624.273085478.1441642123
[vagrant@localhost lounge]$ sudo yum install -y mongodb-org Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Setting up Install Process Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: centos.host-engine.com * epel: ftp.osuosl.org * extras: ftp.osuosl.org * remi-safe: mirrors.mediatemple.net * updates: mirror.solarvps.com No package mongodb-org available. Error: Nothing to do
I'm looking at the instructions for RHEL 6, and this is what I have (am I using the correct instructions?):
[vagrant@localhost yum.repos.d]$ cat /proc/version Linux version 2.6.32-431.el6.i686 (email@example.com) (gcc version 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-4) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Fri Nov 22 00:26:36 UTC 2013
Likewise, the command yum search mongodb-org says No matches found.
Here is my repo file as the instructions said to create:
[vagrant@localhost yum.repos.d]$ cat mongodb-org-3.0.repo [mongodb-org-3.0] name=MongoDB Repository baseurl=https://repo.mongodb.org/yum/redhat/$releasever/mongodb-org/3.0/x86_64/ gpgcheck=0 enabled=1 [vagrant@localhost yum.repos.d]$
I upgraded the OS from CentOS 6.5 to Centos 7, followed subtly different instructions:
The repo file is the same, but for whatever reason CentOS 7 procedures worked without a hitch.
Note: I don't think this is an answer, just a workaround, so if someone can say why the 6.5 procedures didn't work, that would be the actual answer.
