Unable to install Ansible on local machine

I have started Ansible Beginner Course while i was trying to install i am getting below error.

[osboxes@ansiblecontroller test-project]$ sudo yum install ansible -y
[sudo] password for osboxes:
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=7&arch=x86_64&repo=os&infra=stock error was
14: curl#7 - “Failed connect to mirrorlist.centos.org:80; Operation now in progress”

One of the configured repositories failed (Unknown),
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. Run the command with the repository temporarily disabled
        yum --disablerepo=<repoid> ...

 4. Disable the repository permanently, 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 <repoid>
        subscription-manager repos --disable=<repoid>

 5. 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=<repoid>.skip_if_unavailable=true

Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base/7/x86_64

Can you please help me on this.

I have followed same steps as mentioned in the installation video.
Take the OS image from OSBOXES.org


This is most likely the DNS issue. Try to use Google public DNS i.e Update your /etc/resolv.conf file and add new name servers like this



I guess just install epel for you Baremetal and install ansible using yum if there’s network replated issues do one thing:

  1. sudo dhclient -v
  2. ping // if working go to step 3 else go to step 5
  3. sudo nmcli con show // check network profiles name
  4. sudo nmcli con up { insert network profile name } // get network profile names from step 3
  5. ping goo.gl // if working go to next step else check dns entry and check if dns is working for the profile also still not working make custom network profile and activate it hopefully that will work.
  6. sudo dnf install https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm // incase centos 7.x / rhel 7.x then replace 8 with 7
  7. sudo yum install ansible -y

after above steps ansible should be installed by now. if still issues connect to me I will help.
