Elasticsearch YUM Repositories Are Down

(Van) #1

Elasticsearch Community,

The documentation for installing Elasticsearch as an RPM is out of date. Not sure on the status of the YUM repos. I noticed there was ticket(155198) open in Nov, yet was closed with no resolution.

Let me know!

If you are noticing a problem then providing details on what you are doing and what you are seeing, including commands, their output, and any other logging, is really helpful.

Thank you for the response. I made an assumption when attempting to access via my web browser over port 443 and I got a 404 Not Found. Therefore I assumed that the yum install would not work. We also attempted to proxy this internally via Artifactory and still received a 404. In an attempt to answer your question above, I attempted to install elasticsearch on my own Fedora machine.

It worked. This is on us and the ticket can be closed.
