Unable to install Filezilla client ...

Post by mjz » 2020/02/14 16:28:17

I tried to install filezilla, but it is not found?

[root@HomeServ bin]# yum install filezilla
Last metadata expiration check: 0:35:37 ago on Fri 14 Feb 2020 09:49:49 AM CST.
No match for argument: filezilla
Error: Unable to find a match: filezilla

epel-release is already installed.

Am I missing something?

Filezilla is in EPEL for CentOS 7 so you either have it disabled or you have removed the file that defines it. Check in /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo for enabled=1 or, if the file is not there at all, yum reinstall epel-release
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

I reinstalled epel-release and checked for filezilla in yum.repos.d .... no such package.

filezilla is not showing up in epel?

[root@HomeServ ~]# yum reinstall epel-release

I think that's epel for CentOS 8.

I am having no luck installing Filezilla on Centos 7. The normal Yum update and install isn't working. Filezilla not found.

Remove the wrong, and then install the correct:

Do yum remove epel-release and then yum install epel-release

What's the output from rpm -q centos-release

Right now the Epel release is:

centos-release-8.1-1.1911.0.8.el8.x86_64

That suggests you're using CentOS 8.
To confirm, what's the output of this:
uname -a
more /etc/redhat-release

Edit: If that's the case, it looks like there's no filezilla:
