Hi Folks,

Today after configuring YUM server on one of my Test Oracle DB machine, i failed to update any package or the entire YUM repository.
This is what' happening and what I've performed yet to kill the issue occurred:


-- [root]# yum update
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update


And it don't even able to update already installed packages ex: Firefox Browser.
[root @ localhost Server]# yum search firefox
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
=================================== Matched: firefox ==================================================
firefox.i386 : Mozilla Firefox Web browser.
[root @ localhost Server]# yum update firefox.i386
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
Setting up Update Process
Error: No Package Matching firefox.i386


The problem still persists even after i cleared all current Metadata.

[root @ localhost Server]# yum clean all
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
Cleaning up Everything
[root at localhost Server]# yum clean metadata
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
0 metadata files removed
0 sqlite files removed
0 metadata files removed

I re-tried and failed again:
[root @ localhost Server]# yum update
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.
Setting up Update Process
No Packages marked for Update
