fix CentOS 6 error: YumRepo

Resolution
To fix this problem you edit /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo and replace all mirrorlist

  1. Go to /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory:

    cd /etc/yum.repos.d/

  2. Make copy of original file:

    cp CentOS-Base.repo CentOS-Base.repo.old

  3. Open and edit file with any text editor:

    vi CentOS-Base.repo

  4. Replace mirrorlistβ€˜s

Replace sections:

[base]
[updates]
[extras]

With following:

[base]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Base
# mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=os&infra=$infra
# baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/os/$basearch/
baseurl=https://vault.centos.org/6.10/os/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6

# released updates
[updates]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Updates
# mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=updates&infra=$infra
# baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/updates/$basearch/
baseurl=https://vault.centos.org/6.10/updates/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6

# additional packages that may be useful
[extras]
name=CentOS-$releasever - Extras
# mirrorlist=http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=$releasever&arch=$basearch&repo=extras&infra=$infra
# baseurl=http://mirror.centos.org/centos/$releasever/extras/$basearch/
baseurl=https://vault.centos.org/6.10/extras/$basearch/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-6
