CentOS thinks it needs a RedHat License

Post by Kemmler94 » 2020/06/23 15:36:50

Hello everyone,

I'm relativly new to RHEL and its derivatives. Since a few days I am using CentOS 8 on my homelab server.
However since today, if i try to update my system with dnf or try to install software with yum they tell me that I have no valid RedHat subscription.
So I get an error Message like:

Code: Select all

Updating Subscription Management repositories.
Unable to read consumer identity
This system is not registered to Red Hat Subscription Management. You can use subscription-manager to register.
So I cant install any updates or software anymore.
I haven't edited anything like dnf or yum config files or something like that.
Hopefully you guys can help me solve that problem, since I dont want to reinstall because i got my stuff up and running pretty good.
Please excuse my bad english and spelling since I'm from germany.
