Dear Dev. Team!

I have issues updating my server both from the WebUI, and console. In the WebUI, I simply get frozen out and unable to proceed anywhere til I restart webservice via console. In console, I also get stuck at updating when it tries to retrieve information from the mirrors. I had to Ctrl + C from the command because it was unresponsive and couldn't move forward. Here is the output of it.

[root@firewall ~]# yum update
Loaded plugins: clearcenter-marketplace, fastestmirror
ClearCenter Marketplace: fetching repositories...
^C^CLoading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
^CCould not retrieve mirrorlist error was
14: curl#56 - "Network error recv()"

One of the configured repositories failed (Unknown),
and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:

1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
packages for the previous distribution release still work).

3. Run the command with the repository temporarily disabled
yum --disablerepo=<repoid> ...

4. Disable the repository permanently, so yum won't use it by default. Yum
will then just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it
again or use --enablerepo for temporary usage:

yum-config-manager --disable <repoid>
subscription-manager repos --disable=<repoid>

5. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice

yum-config-manager --save --setopt=<repoid>.skip_if_unavailable=true

Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: clearos-contribs/7

Do you have new repository addresses? Also, I'm unable to download the latest version of the ISO from your server, same results, the URL is not responding.

A quickfix would be appreciated.

    Sorry for the outage, the server error on mirrorlist has been fixed. It should be stable now.

    0 votes is down for the moment. The Americans won't wake up for a few hours so it won't be fixed until then.

    Here is a direct link to the 7.6 iso. It should install OK but the first run wizard may fail as it tries to do an initial update.
