The error says, "One of the configured repositories failed". Are you able to install packages manually? When you ran "yum update ..." in response to dbaxps's question, did you run it on the same host that was reporting this error?

I didn't answer a question, I just commented it Objection.

Have you tried just running packstack again? Maybe there was a transient error accessing a remote repository.

Are you behind a proxy? If so, add your proxy to /etc/yum.conf

yes, i am using a proxy .. but its is all perfectly set in the env varibales .. yum is able to find all other packages .. is it necessary to set proxy in yum.conf as well ?
