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From what I know rpmforge is already outdated.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
