SELinux is running in permissive mode

yum update is yielding:

Loaded plugins: amazon-id, rhui-lb, search-disabled-repos Webmin
| 1.0 kB 00:00:00 Could not retrieve mirrorlist https://None/pulp/mirror/rhui-client-config/rhel/server/7/x86_64/os error was 14: curl#6 - "Could not resolve host: None; Name or service not known"

This is a fresh Amazon Red Hat 7 box, with webmin and a LAMP stack.

    rhui could not determine what region your instance is running in. This doesn't look like an SELinux issue. Though, it could have been caused by installing Webmin. Start over with a new instance, and this time, don't install Webmin. – Michael Hampton Jul 6 '16 at 4:15

Had the same issue, the resolution was that, edit /etc/yum.repos.d/rhui-load-balancers.conf with


I restored the rhui-load-balancers.conf file and that resolve the issue.




  • Make sure that that is the correct region. If it is not, then you may be charged for data transfer. – Michael Hampton Jul 7 '16 at 3:02
