Linux YUM – Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository

Posted by FatDBA on January 6, 2016

Some time back I’ve got an error message with YUM even when the installation and configuration went successful.
Where it fails every time i called any of the YUM commands with error message “Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository”.

[root@Fatdba ~]# yum list
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
Repository ol6_latest is listed more than once in the configuration
Repository ol6_ga_base is listed more than once in the configuration
ftp://obiftp/YUM_local/GDS/obi/6.1/repodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 – “The requested URL returned error: 502”
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: base_el6_local. Please verify its path and try again

Solution:
Try the following sequence of steps to fix this problem.

$ sudo su –
# cd /etc/yum.repos.d
# rm -f *
# wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-ol6.repoThis needs Internet Connection
# yum clean all
# yum makecache

Hope That Helps
