Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 820360
Unable to download EPEL RPM from download.fedoraproject when on EC2
Last modified: 2012-05-11 00:14:02 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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. curl -L http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-5.noarch.rpm from EC2 ip space
[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)
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
x-amz-error-message: The specified key does not exist.

The RPM should be returned.
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.
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?
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...)
