Centos 7.4 yum update mirror site issues from repomd.xml

Mon, 2018-02-19 18:37

I've been attempting to figure out why my repos aren't functioning. It appears all the mirrors are eventually linking to the same repomd.xml file. That uses the following entry.

<repomd xmlns="http://linux.duke.edu/metadata/repo" xmlns:rpm="http://linux.duke.edu/metadata/rpm">

When yum update attempts to go to that site. It errors out. Going to the site directly with a browser shows that the site has been moved. I then curl the moved to link and get cannot be found. https://sites.duke.edu/linuxmetadata/repo

I'm probably overlooking something. But i feel i've covered my bases. Any one know what's up? Something i've forgotten to do? My resolv.conf file is configured and i can reach those sites using curl without an issue. In addition. fedoraproject.org epel repo works just fine.

Edit: Modified the second duke.edu site

Mirror sites all with the same repomd.xml: https://www.centos.org/download/mirrors/

The moderation choices of this subreddit are sometimes a bit questionable

There was a nice discussion going on about the data collection practices of Ubuntu with 300 comments. Suddenly a mod decided to close the discussion, just because he happened to find a duplicate from 2 days ago with 30 comments. Seriously?

Not sure if this is the right place, but what are the linux subsystems and what are they for?

I use Ubuntu on my laptop and my desktop runs Windows 10 (for gaming). I noticed the other day that there are linux subsystems for windows 10 now, so I went ahead and downloaded it, and try using it, but having no idea what they are for. Can I use it like a normal terminal to do things with windows?
