Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Red Hat Satellite 6.x
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.x, 6.x, 7.x.


  • yum commands fail with below error on Satellite 6.x clients:
https://satellite.domain.com/pulp/repos/test/Library/content/dist/rhel/server/6/6Server/x86_64/os/repodata /repomd.xml: [Errno 14] PYCURL ERROR 22 - "The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found"


  • Set the correct release version on the content host to resolve the issue:

    • On Satellite GUI > Hosts > Content Hosts > click on the affected client > Details section > edit Content Host Content and select the appropriate release version (7Server in this example) and lifecycle environment:
    • Refer the below image describing the above changes on satellite GUI:

  • Alternatively, on the content host, the correct release version can be set using subscription-manager as well:

    # cat /etc/redhat-release                                -->  Verify the host RHEL release :
    # subscription-manager release --show                --> Verify the subscription manager release set
    # subscription-manager release --set=7Server            --> Set the correct release 
    # yum clean all 
    # yum repolist

Root Cause

  • Incorrect subscription manager release is set for the host.

Diagnostic Steps

  • Run yum repolist command on the client which is subscribed to the Satellite 6 server. The command results in the following output:

    [root@client1 ~] # yum repolist
    Loaded plugins: package_upload, product-id, refresh-packagekit, security, subscription-manager

Encountered the same behavior for Satellite 6.1 (beta) and RHEL 7.1 clients. Seems not limited to RHEL6 clients.
Problem solved by entering the Release Version to the Activation Key used for the Host Group.

In my case, I had a composite view jboss-eap64-on-rhel-6.6.z contains two sub content views: eap64 and rhel-6.6.z. EAP64 is based on release 6Server while rhel-6.6.z realase 6.6. It got the same errors. I fixed it by put both sub-views in the same release.

The issue I am dealing with is the ability to self register my satellite. The error is The SSL certificate failed verification

I am also running into an issue where anytime I run "yum -y update" the client cannot download dependencies.

I had to do the opposite and remove "6.3" and keep "Release Version:" empty. Running Satellite 6.3.5
