Spark and Impala are part of the main CDH parcel.  The errors are because the default parcel URLs point to the old parcel locations when spark and Impala were not part of CDH.


To stop the errors from happening, go into Cloudera Manager, Navigate to "Administration > Settings"


In the Search field, search for "parcels".


Locate Remote Parcel Repository URLs


Remove the following URLs:




The errors themselves should not indicate a functional problem, but the above should address.
