I have CentOS 6.5

I'm trying to intsall git via yum but getting an error while installing the pre-requisite packages. I don't need to but it doesn't hurt running sudo with root.

Error message:

--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error:  Multilib version problems found. This often means that the root
       cause is something else and multilib version checking is just
       pointing out that there is a problem. Eg.:

         1. You have an upgrade for libselinux which is missing some
            dependency that another package requires. Yum is trying to
            solve this by installing an older version of libselinux of the
            different architecture. If you exclude the bad architecture
            yum will tell you what the root cause is (which package
            requires what). You can try redoing the upgrade with
            --exclude libselinux.otherarch ... this should give you an error
            message showing the root cause of the problem.

         2. You have multiple architectures of libselinux installed, but
            yum can only see an upgrade for one of those arcitectures.
            If you don't want/need both architectures anymore then you
            can remove the one with the missing update and everything
            will work.

         3. You have duplicate versions of libselinux installed already.
            You can use "yum check" to get yum show these errors.

       ...you can also use --setopt=protected_multilib=false to remove
       this checking, however this is almost never the correct thing to
       do as something else is very likely to go wrong (often causing
       much more problems).

       Protected multilib versions: libselinux-2.0.94-5.3.el6_4.1.i686 != libselinux-2.0.94-5.8.el6.x86_64
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

Error Summary
-------------

I saw this post to install extra package repo for CentOS 6 (x86_64) but that didn't help. With using this, now I'm getting a 3rd error.

# wget http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
# rpm -ivh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
warning: epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 0608b895: NOKEY

   1:epel-release           ########################################### [100%]
[root@server01 yum.repos.d]#

Now yum repolist shows an extra line (for extra packages - CentOS):

epel                                                                         Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 6 - x86_64                                                   11,838

Still, running: sudo yum -y install curl-devel expat-devel gettext-devel openssl-devel zlib-devel gcc perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker is still giving me the same error (that I got first as mentioned at top).

/etc/yum.repos.d contains -- # pwd; ls -l

Puppetlabs.repo seems redundant for this post, the first 2 .repo files got installed here after I downloaded + installed the extra package repo rpm (as listed in the post/link above) and contents in mycompany.redhat.repo are:

    Your system doesn't appear to be using the official CentOS repositories. What repos are installed, who installed them, and for what purpose? – Michael Hampton Dec 28 '15 at 22:32
  • @MichaelHampton - It seems like they are not set in the base image. How can I install the official CentOS repositories? In /etc/yum.repos.d, I see only 3 files (with .repo extension). 1) epel.repo 2) epel-testing.repo 3) puppetlabs.repo 4) mycompany.redhat.repo. The first 2 came after I downloaded + installed download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/… and puppet one seems redundant here for my issue. I have updated the question with the contents of mycompany.redhat.repo file. – Arun Sangal Dec 28 '15 at 22:34
  • Those repos are provided by your company, then? They are most likely out of sync (and out of date). Contact whoever maintains them. – Michael Hampton Dec 28 '15 at 22:42
  • As you gave me the hint, I found on another CentOS 6.4 (though instead of 6.5), I see extra .repo files under /etc/yum.repos.d folder. There are 4 CentOS-*.repo files. On that machine, when I ran the command, I didn't get the above error message. I'll poke around how to get these files here on CentOS 6.5 server (by default or by running some command/script). It's a VM that I'm creating using an image provided by Platform team so, you're right either they have to provide those base .repo files OR I'd get it somehow. – Arun Sangal Dec 28 '15 at 22:45
  • Those extra files which seems to fix this issue are: /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo (at least this one), CentOS-Debuginfo.repo, CentOS-Media.repo and CentOS-Vault.repo – Arun Sangal Dec 28 '15 at 22:47

Thanks to Michael H. I created a file at /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo (I made it a little generic so that it can work for any 6.x or 7 version). It worked on 6.5. If you find any issue using this file with CentOS 7.x, then all you need is the correct CentOS-Base.repo (official .repo file for CentOS 7.x or any X.Y version) and the issue coming in the post will be resolved.

Contents of /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base-Custom.repo (PS: I named it custom as instead of using hardcoded version 6, I used $releasever variable in name, mirrorlist, baseurl, gpgkey fields inside the .repo file.

# CentOS-Base.repo
#
# The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
# update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and
# geographically close to the client.  You should use this for CentOS updates
# unless you are manually picking other mirrors.
#
# If the mirrorlist= does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the
# remarked out baseurl= line instead.

Ran: sudo yum -y install curl-devel expat-devel gettext-devel openssl-devel zlib-devel gcc perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker and it worked without any errors.

Re-ran the same and the output came as expected.

All I need now is to use template module in Ansible (and set this file in /etc/yum.repos.d folder on the target machine) and once done, the above pre-requisites will be installed without any errors and ansible will install the desired (user defined GIT version) that I need.
