Packages not available on fresh install

Latest response

Creating new post as first attempt seems to have failed. Apologies if first too got posted.
I come from deb background
when I install rhel, I expect package pointers in /etc/yum.repos.d
I don't see any.
Is there a way to fill that up?
when try install a group such as '[root@localhost marty]# yum grouinstall 'Development Tools'
Loaded plugins: langpacks, product-id, search-disabled-repos, subscription-
: manager
This system is registered with an entitlement server, but is not receiving updates. You can use subscription-manager to assign subscriptions.
No such command: grouinstall. Please use /usr/bin/yum --help
[root@localhost marty]#

Can someone help me installing 'Development Tools'?


Sometimes little things might be the solution - you made a typo.
Instead of yum "grouinstall" better type : yum groupinstall :)
The command is : yum groupinstall "Development Tools"

To attach the subscriptions execute the following commands :

sudo subscription-manager register
sudo subscription-manager refresh
sudo subscription-manager attach --auto

To enable additional repositories execute these commands :

sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-extras-rpms
sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-optional-rpms
sudo subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms

Now you should be able to use the (update) system properly.

Thank you for going the little extra miles and posing the command to get the updated. Thank you!

You're welcome Suresh ! :)
I'm glad that it helped you.

HI all, During the upgrade of the redhat7.9 to 8.2, every time I ran the leapp upgrade then I received these error in "high". I need some advise or please show me how to deal with these errors. I am a newbie with redhat. Thank you in advance.

[root@rhel6-10 ~]# cat /var/log/leapp/leapp-report.txt Risk Factor: high (inhibitor) Title: Upgrade requires links in root directory to be relative Summary: After rebooting, parts of the upgrade process can fail if symbolic links in / point to absolute paths. Please change these links to relative ones.

Remediation: [command] sh -c ln -snf var/lib/snapd/snap /snap

Risk Factor: high Title: Difference in Python versions and support in RHEL 8 Summary: In RHEL 8, there is no 'python' command. Python 3 (backward incompatible) is the primary Python version and Python 2 is available with limited support and limited set of packages. Read more here:

Remediation: [hint] Please run "alternatives --set python /usr/bin/python3" after upgrade

Risk Factor: high Title: GRUB core on /dev/sda will be updated during upgrade

Summary: On legacy (BIOS) systems, GRUB core (located in the gap between the MBR and the first partition) does not get automatically updated when GRUB is upgraded.

Risk Factor: high Title: Packages not signed by Red Hat found on the system Summary: The following packages have not been signed by Red Hat and may be removed during the upgrade process in case Red Hat-signed packages to be removed during the upgrade depend on them:

  • epel-release
  • gpg-pubkey
  • htop
  • libzstd
  • python36-chardet
  • python36-idna
  • python36-pysocks
  • python36-requests
  • python36-six
  • python36-urllib3
  • snap-confine
  • snapd
  • snapd-selinux
  • squashfuse
- squashfuse-libs

Hi Sonny,

Although an upgrade might be possible, it is not recommended to upgrade from one major edition to the next.
Please perform a fresh installation of RHEL 8.2 - Fixing issues may take more time than a fresh installation ... :)
