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):


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

Transfer-Encoding: chunked
Date: Wed, 09 May 2012 18:22:46 GMT

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?

Comment 3 Matt Domsch 2012-05-10 21:50:16 EDT
I've forwarded the query on to Ian Weller, our wiki expert.  Closing this bug.

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...)
