    "yum update" on a new server fails:

    My /etc/yum.conf:

    I found if I comment the [updates] section out the update works ... but am I not missing some important updates if I do that?

    I'm on RHEL/ES3

    The reason this is happening is that ART has headers for the KRB* files, but they are not in that RPMs folder.

    Shoot him an email and he'll take care of it.

    The [updates] repository is for 3rd party updates, you could browse the folder to see if there are any in there you are actually using. They are not *critical*, they are not part of the core OS or Plesk CP.

    As James stated the error is because of the headers being present and not the actual package. That being said, there are quite a few packages missing from that repo, and I would not be using it as your OS update mirror. Also, you should not have multiple repos for PSA. Use only the repo that matches your installed version of Plesk, a more sane yum.conf would look like this

    My personal opinion is: ART's repository is usually quite problem free. Any repository can have an occasional error. Everyone is free to choose what repo's they wish to use.

    ART's repo contents normally will not break Plesk, I did a full yum update just a couple days before madsere and did not get any failures, nor have I ever had any Plesk server break due to his repo contents.

    There have been many times where the only place I could find the updated I needed in his repos, and they were already set to integrate into Plesk, so no additional work on my part!

    Personally I continue to stick by ART and his hard efforts. (Hearty Thank You to Scott!)

    I think you misunderstood what I was saying James.

    I am not saying to not use ART. I'm saying that his [updates] repo is not in sync, and that it shouldn't be relied on for OS updates, which from the looks of it, the OP was doing so.

    I use ART, and have ever since Scott started it. Hell, I was his guinea pig for RPM's long before he started ART. His packages are usually great, and I recommend them to anyone.

    I am hanging my head low :) You are right I mis-interpreted your post. Sorry.

    Good idea, however, the repos you suggest have already been changed. There are no /os/ or /updates/ subdirectories for centos anymore, now they're called 2.x, 3.x or 4.x - a total of some 10 directories.

    Isn't there a sane working yum.conf available anywhere?

    my 3rd-party archive is just a straight rsync off of other maintainers. So whatever they're doing, Im just copying it

    No blame is being assigned, I just need a solution.
