Why yum grouplist "<package group name>" does not list the groups in repository in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I have a custom yum repository created with reposync and createrepo command, and it's used via HTTP.
  • I configured a yum repository configuration for the custom repository. Butyum grouplist <package group name> failed to output the groups.
# yum grouplist
Loaded plugins: search-disabled-repos
There is no installed groups file.
Maybe run: yum groups mark convert (see man yum)
Warning: no environments/groups match:
