Amazon AMI with EPEL Repo throws error when updating latest etckeeper

Written by James McDonald

May 16, 2018

When doing a yum update I get

Error: Package: etckeeper-1.18.7-2.el6.noarch (epel) Requires: hostname

Problem is currently fixed in epel-testing re

So to fix you just need to install it from testing:

sudo yum install --enablerepo=epel-testing etckeeper
