Problem with the repos

Post by Mila » 2021/05/04 14:51:51

Dear Centos8 users.

I am not an expert in linux, and in most forums I have seen some recommendation to solve the problem with repositories, but I could not. I am having the problem to install mpich libraries in my centos8. In the attached picture you can see what is the error I got.
In others chats I saw they recommended to change the file sea-devel.repo, which in my case has the following structure:
[FedoraPeople-sea]
name=sea's devel packages
baseurl=http://sea.fedorapeople.org/repo
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

But I do not what exactly I need to change?

Could you please help me?

That's either the wrong url or the repo is just broken.

mpich ...

Code: Select all

$ sudo dnf -q list \*mpich\*
Available Packages
mpich.i686                                3.2.1-9.el8                     appstream
mpich.x86_64                              3.2.1-9.el8                     appstream
mpich-devel.i686                          3.2.1-9.el8                     appstream
mpich-devel.x86_64                        3.2.1-9.el8                     appstream
mpitests-mpich.x86_64                     5.6.2-1.el8                     appstream
The mpich is in repository appstream. A core CentOS repo.


Note: browser returns with http://sea.fedorapeople.org/repo/repodata/repomd.xml :
You don't have permission to access /repo/repodata/repomd.xml on this server.
If we cannot access file, then we can't read it.

I'd say "repo recently broken": https://github.com/notepadqq/notepadqq- ... /issues/69

What is this "sea's devel packages" repository? Where did it come from? Why do you have it?

The first thing I would do is disable that repository:

Code: Select all

$ sudo dnf config-manager --disable FedoraPeople-sea

Not "nothing".

The "dnf list" did report the same error as earlier commands. It is possible that it prevents generating a list.

The "config-manager --disable" updates the configuration of a repository to make it disabled.
Disabled repo will not be used. Thus further command will not stop at that broken repo.
"Nothing" is perfect result for this command.

You can try the list again, but just for fun do:

Code: Select all

sudo dnf repolist
It will list the repositories that you have configured and enabled.
To see all configured repositories, you can do:

Code: Select all

sudo dnf repolist all

One last thing:
You most likely can select text on terminal and copy-paste it to forum posts.
That is more compact and actionable than bitmap screenshots.
You can format text in post. See button </> above? It adds code tags. I have those in my post.

I'm comming to this a bit late, but why are you getting the subscription manager messages? I seem to remeber this arose when C8 was first released. On my C8 test VM the file /etc/dnf/plugins/subscription-manager.conf has the following:

Code: Select all

# cat subscription-manager.conf 
[main]
enabled=0

# When following option is set to 1, then all repositories defined outside redhat.repo will be disabled
# every time subscription-manager plugin is triggered by dnf or yum
disable_system_repos=0
I'd suggest you check yours. Note that if it is enabled "all repositories defined outside redhat.repo will be disabled"
