5.14.2 Repo Error


I am trying to install java from latest repo and it gives error as follows:

yum install oracle-j2sdk1.7
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
cloudera-manager | 951 B 00:00
cloudera-manager/primary FAILED [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum
Trying other mirror.
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* base:
* extras:
* updates:
cloudera-manager/primary | 4.3 kB 00:00 [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum
Trying other mirror.

One of the configured repositories failed (Cloudera Manager),
and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:

1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
packages for the previous distribution release still work).

3. Run the command with the repository temporarily disabled
yum --disablerepo=cloudera-manager ...

4. Disable the repository permanently, so yum won't use it by default. Yum
will then just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it
again or use --enablerepo for temporary usage:

yum-config-manager --disable cloudera-manager
subscription-manager repos --disable=cloudera-manager

5. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice

yum-config-manager --save --setopt=cloudera-manager.skip_if_unavailable=true

failure: repodata/primary.xml.gz from cloudera-manager: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. [Errno -1] Metadata file does not match checksum


cat cloudera-manager.repo
# Packages for Cloudera Manager, Version 5, on RedHat or CentOS 7 x86_64
name=Cloudera Manager
gpgkey =
gpgcheck = 1


Please check the global repo, I also notice that documentation for 5.14.1 & 5.14.2 are still pointin to same repo file.

Re: 5.14.2 Repo Error

Try running "yum clean all" and try running the installer again. This will clear your yum cache and will often fix this kind of issue.
