Unable to run YUM UPDATE

We have several servers where we can no longer run yum updates. The updates either hang out “running transactions” or we get these errors.


Do you have sangoma-devel installed. As it seems like you have an old version of it since your urls are directly pointing to 7.5 which is wrong.

yum remove sangoma-devel
yum clean all
yum upgrade

[root@heartofohiopbx asterisk]# yum remove sangoma-devel
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, versionlock
No Match for argument: sangoma-devel
No Packages marked for removal

Same result. Getting stuck at Running Transaction. I have let this go for an hour and nothing.

“Running Transaction” happens locally. Has nothing to do with our mirror servers.

Searching the internet yields yum Command Hangs on Running Transaction Test Message Error and Solution - nixCraft

You still have the issue that you are locked to 7.5 however.

FreePBX Distro 14.0.11

Getting the following error this afternoon on “yum check-update”. Tried three times.

http://sng7.com/os/7.5/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found

I’m curious how people are getting 7.5 in there as all distro systems should be http://sng7.com/os/7/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml

cat /etc/yum/vars/releasever

yup same thing

http://sng7.com/os/7.5/os/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found

[root@freepbx ~]# cat /etc/yum/vars/releasever
cat: /etc/yum/vars/releasever: No such file or directory
[root@freepbx ~]#

You all just need to run: yum clean all

As your mirrors are cached.

yeah that worked.

yum clean all
yum upgrade

503 packages updated

I have no such file.

I’m attaching a file showing all the cached mirrorlist.txt file mod times and contents.

“yum clean all” did eliminate the yum errors, but now yum wants to update 243 packages. I just updated the system on 04/27!

typescript.tgz (445 Bytes)

Ok. This is normal though.

Did 7.6 transition to Stable some time between 04/27 and 04/29? I ask because now the cached mirrorlist.txt files are referencing 7.6 directories, whereas they were referencing 7.5 directories before “yum clean all”. I think that’s why I suddenly have 243 packages to be updated: it’s an update from 7.5 to 7.6.

See my latest post, 7.6 has just gone live, yay!
