Hi @Subrahmanya Oruganti

I don't believe that Linux Mint is a supported distribution for HDP or HDF. I think the closest would be Ubuntu 16.04.

Please see the HDP install guide.

Is Elementary OS supported ?? it uses internally Ubuntu 16.04

Please find the Supported Operating System Details:

http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.6.0/bk_support-matrices/content/ch_matrices-amba...

- I am afraid that Linux-Mint is not in the Tested/Supported Operating Systems list. Hence ambari is not able to locate the Repository for this Operating system and hence it is failing.

Please take a look at: https://github.com/apache/ambari/blob/release-2.5.0/ambari-common/src/main/python/ambari_commons/os_...
