problem yum install perl-Net-SSLeay [centos 6.8]

i am trying to install webmin on my server but when i try to install, i get the notification to install yum install perl-Net-SSLeay, when i try the above command via ssh i get this error why: yum install perl-Net-SSLeay Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Setting up Install Process Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile


i did the above command and here is the results:

yum list perl-Net-SSLeay Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile

It looks like this is a known issue with Webmin on some CentOS 6.x versions; some users found that specifying a package version (rather than the metapackage) corrected the issue, I recommend searching for the version available to your installation with yum list perl-Net-SSLeay* which should show you which packages are available.

What is the solution if the package for perl-Net-SSLeay is not available? What is the command and location to get the right package for Centos7?

From what I know rpmforge is already outdated. You have to remove that repo. Make sure your CentOS is a clean OS.

Method 1:

sudo rm -rf /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmforge.repo
sudo yum -y update

Method 2:

sudo nano /etc/yum.repos.d/rpmforge.repo


enabled = 0


sudo yum -y update

Install perl, perl-Net-SSLeay, openssl, perl-IO-Tty

sudo yum -y install perl perl-Net-SSLeay openssl perl-IO-Tty
