CentOS-7 / CR repo has been populated

Friday, 20, March 2015 kbsingh builds, General 17 Comments

Waiting for the new package set in the next CentOS-7 release ? A majority of them are now available on every CentOS-7 machine by running the following commands :

yum update
yum --enablerepo=cr list updates

Its important you run a 'yum update' first, since the cr repo definitions are only available in the newer centos-release rpms. Once you are happy with the new content that is going to come via the CR repos, you can apply them with :
yum --enablerepo=cr update

For more information on whats been pushed to these CR Repos, look at the announcement email at : http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2015-March/020980.html

You can get more information on the CR process, the repository and the content inside it at : http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR

    Small typo;
    yum --enabelrepo=cr list updates

    should be
    yum --enablerepo=cr list updates

    "yum --enabelrepo=cr list updates" contains a typo!

    Not all packages were updated on 3-20 so that update command will fail.... see the following packages:




    Please try your commands before posting.

      Can you be more precise with your issue? Updateing those packages from CR works fine for me.

    2. Anssi Johansson says:

      Perhaps you are using slightly outdated package metadata. Please try "yum clean all" and see if the problems persist.

      1. Shaun Assam says:

        I am having the same issue and output as habwtl when running the CR update. Tried the "yum clean all" command and tried running the CR update but the same error occurs.

      2. PaddyMacWack says:

        Same errors, yum clean all does not resolve.

    3. Anssi Johansson says:

      Looks like there were some problems with delta rpms. The full packages were okay, but the drpms had problems. This has now been corrected, and the updated deltarpms are now syncing to mirrors. Sorry for the trouble.

  4. Sam says:

    The announcement email you point to does not refer to the March 20 release...

    Maybe you should delete this post and redo the whole thing.?!

    1. Akemi Yagi says:

      Corrected the link to the CR announcement. Thanks.

  5. Shaun Assam says:

    I found a workaround to the issue explained by habwtl. The error is regarding the download of the abrt packages using the Delta RPMs. Disable Delta RPMS, by adding the line deltarpm=0 in /etc/yum.conf. After doing this I ran the yum –enabelrepo=cr list updates command and it downloaded the packages.

    1. Akemi Yagi says:

      Thanks for reporting this. The deltarpm problem has been confirmed by others. Needs to be corrected by CentOS devs.

    Is there a schedule for final release?
