Asterisk yum throws 404 error

I don’t know what I did to my asterisk, but every time I now tried to use the yum command. I get the following error.

Could not retrieve mirrorlist error was
14: HTTP Error 404 - Not Found [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found
Trying other mirror.
To address this issue please refer to the below knowledge base article

One of the configured repositories failed (RHEL 7 - - dag),
and yum doesn’t have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work “fix” this:

 1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

 2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
    upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
    distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
    packages for the previous distribution release still work).

 3. Disable the repository, so yum won't use it by default. Yum will then
    just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it again or use
    --enablerepo for temporary usage:

        yum-config-manager --disable rpmforge

 4. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
    Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
    so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
    slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice

        yum-config-manager --save --setopt=rpmforge.skip_if_unavailable=true

failure: repodata/repomd.xml from rpmforge: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404 - Not Found

I created an issue on CentOS but I was made to know that it is not a yum bug and it has something to do with rpmforge.

It is clear this issue is not related to asterisk. A quick google search could help you to solve your issue.

You can get these 404 errors when the metadata downloaded by yum has become obsolete.

To repair yum 404 errors, clean yum metadata as follows.

$ sudo yum clean metadata
Or you can clear the whole yum cache:

$ sudo yum clean all
