are you following this install step?

It worked for me.

What VM? Vmware? VirtualBox? Docker? What host os? Windows? OSX?

How much RAM do you have.

Super Guru

you need to follow the sandbox installation guide to make sure all the ports are open and you are allowed to access the internet from the sandbox.

make sure you follow full networking info


to get around this error go to /etc/yum.repos.d and mv the file sandbox.repo out of this folder into some other folder and then do the yum install
