Platformx86_64OSCentOSOS Version7.7.1908
Summary0016423: SCLo source repository does not exist for CentOS 7.7.1908
DescriptionFirst, thank you for maintaining this new CentOS 7.7 version!

The issue I have looks the same as what is described in #15606 : The new default version is 7.7.1908 and with this new version, there is no "repodata" dir for SCLO repos:


So we can add the two repos (via centos-release-scl-rh package) but any "yum-builddep" or "yumdownloader --source" commands fail after:


centos-sclo-rh | 3.0 kB 00:00:00 [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found
Trying other mirror.
To address this issue please refer to the below wiki article
If above article doesn't help to resolve this issue please use
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from centos-sclo-rh-source: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found


The only solution seems to add: --disablerepo=centos-sclo-sclo --disablerepo=centos-sclo-rh
But that's not convenient :-)
Steps To Reproduceyum install -y centos-release-scl-rh yum-utils
yum-builddep gzip # error
yumdownloader --source gzip # error
Additional InformationI guess the resolution can be the same as done by @bstinson on
Tags7.7, 7.9, scl

I can't believe this has happened again with the next CentOS release. I'm sure I don't need to remind you that with most of this software, publishing "derivative work" binaries without providing the associated source code is in breach of the software licenses. It's time to fix your release process.

I have the same issue when switching to 7.9.

I didn't notice this was fixed in 7.7 (and 7.8). Do you want me to open a new bug report?

Note that centosplus source are also missing in 7.9 :)
