I am trying to install PostgreSQL on RHEL 6.3 using yum. I am getting a error while installing postgreSQL using yum.


yum install postgresql95-server postgresql95


Loaded plugins: aliases, changelog, downloadonly, refresh-packagekit, security https://download.postgresql.org/pub/repos/yum/9.5/redhat/rhel-6Server-x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] problem making ssl connection Trying other mirror. Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: pgdg95. Please verify its path and try again

I have tried using 'yum clean all', but it's the same.

Help me to troubleshoot this issue.

Use the following commands to sort this issue:

yum clean all

yum update

after these two commands use your installation command.

yum install postgresql95-server postgresql95

This sorted out my problem after several retries.
