Description daniel 2012-05-09 14:34:51 EDT
Description of problem: When an HTTP request is made to http://download.fedoraproject.org from EC2 a 302 redirect is received for s3-mirror-us-east-1.fedoraproject.org and it doesn't have the 6-5.noarch.rpm file. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 6-5 How reproducible: Every time Steps to Reproduce: 1. curl -L http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm from EC2 ip space Actual results: [root@maintenance ~]# curl -IL download.fedoraproject.org:80/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm HTTP/1.1 302 FOUND Date: Wed, 09 May 2012 18:22:44 GMT Server: Apache/2.2.15 (Red Hat) cache-control: no-cache location: http://s3-mirror-us-east-1.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm AppTime: D=25063 AppServer: app02.phx2.fedoraproject.org Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8 ProxyTime: D=116040 ProxyServer: proxy06.fedoraproject.org HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found x-amz-error-code: NoSuchKey x-amz-error-message: The specified key does not exist. x-amz-error-detail-Key: pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm x-amz-request-id: 5E641BE7715F0B73 x-amz-id-2: NldDqsGbdsFARczp18mPROcoHapMLtNlW5MgMqvunWIgzPr6yHaHDWgPnjH5ER0C Transfer-Encoding: chunked Date: Wed, 09 May 2012 18:22:46 GMT Server: AmazonS3 Expected results: The RPM should be returned. Additional info: It seems a number of other HTTP mirrors are returning 404s for that file as well. It only seems to work properly about 10% of the time.

epel-release-6-5 was obsoleted and removed from the master mirror on 21-April. Yum should not be requesting it. sudo yum clean metadata and try again.
Comment 2 daniel 2012-05-09 18:15:54 EDT
Thanks, switched to 6-6 and it's working now. The wiki still says 6-5 for RHEL 6, is there a way to pull whatever the lastest is for a given major release? http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#How_can_I_install_the_packages_from_the_EPEL_software_repository.3F

I've forwarded the query on to Ian Weller, our wiki expert. Closing this bug.

(In reply to comment #2) > The wiki still says 6-5 for RHEL 6, is there a way to pull whatever the lastest > is for a given major release? Unfortunately, not built in, no. (A MediaWiki extension could be written but I wouldn't see it getting a lot of use, and given my PHP skill it would probably have seventy security holes...)
