A look at http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/ shows that there is no SCL directory. Is this intended? Should I update my repos?

You use 6.8 already if you use mirror with /6/

SCL have been moved for CentOS 6.8 and is now available in :

These SCLs are now provided by the SCLo sig.
More information are available at the following URL https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/SCLo

Could you try :
yum remove centos-release-SCL
yum install centos-release-sclo-rh

If you need a copy of the old SCL you can check :

This has helped me:
yum remove centos-release-SCL
yum install centos-release-scl

It would be great to fix the wiki (https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/SCL)


derekolds (reporter)

The work around for me was:

rm /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-SCL.repo
yum -y install centos-release-scl

You have to manually remove CentOS-SCL.repo because it causes yum calls to fail with the error shown above.
