Im trying out 'packstack --allinone' on Centos 6.5, but am getting this error:

Error: Execution of '/usr/bin/yum -d 0 -e 0 -y list mongodb-server' returned 1: Error: No matching Packages to list

When going through the documentation on '', it looks like you have to enable an extra repository, and then the package is named 'mongodb-org-server' and not 'mongodb-server'. (1.)

Is this a bug ?

Try to install mongodb-server before running packstack
# yum -y install mongodb-server

Thanks. But that doesnt work either, and for the same reason: yum cant find the 'mongodb-server' package. Doesnt matter whether i try to 'yum list' or 'yum install' it.

$ yum search mongodb*

Maybe somebody messed up the RDO repository ?

The package just does not seem to be there. I have tried several methods to retrieve the package and that is the conclusion I keep coming back to.

This appears to be due to broken EPEL 6 repo. this worked on Thursday/Friday when I last tried and refuses to work today. mongodb-server was provided by EPEL and I no longer see the rpm in EPEL 6 repo.

I opened a bug in Redhat's bugzilla: (

And I found a EPEL mirror which is not(luckily) in sync with EPEL's primary mirror.

edit /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo and add "" as baseurl for epel repo.

not sure how long this mirror will stay out of sync, but try your luck.

Thanks Manoj

According to that bugzilla bug report, it was deliberately removed from the EPEL 6 repository due to unfixed/unfixable security issues.

Lets see what happens now: ( I opened another bug with Redhat as this would need a fix in Packstack and packstack should install alternate mongodb packages from .

Looks like that first bug report got closed with : 'CANTFIX' (

As a temporary workaround until this get fixed properly, you can work around the issue by not installing ceilometer. Run 'packstack --os-ceilometer-install=n', or if you are using an answers file, you can set CONFIG_CEILOMETER_INSTALL=n.

Thanks Manoj to write why '/usr/bin/yum -d 0 -e 0 -y list mongodb-server' fails.

This is temporary workaround details. (Ceilometer enabled)

You need to download below packages from out of sync EPEL repo manually, like (

  • mongodb-2.4.6-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
  • mongodb-server-2.4.6-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

And you need to download below packages from anywhere EPEL repo manually, like (

  • gperftools-libs-2.0-11.el6.3.x86_64.rpm
  • v8-
  • libunwind-1.1-2.el6.x86_64.rpm

Install dependency packages, and run packstack.

[root@localhost ~]# yum install -y boost-thread boost-filesystem boost-program-options boost-system boost-iostreams libpcap snappy libicu
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -ivh mongodb-2.4.6-1.el6.x86_64.rpm mongodb-server-2.4.6-1.el6.x86_64.rpm gperftools-libs-2.0-11.el6.3.x86_64.rpm v8- libunwind-1.1-2.el6.x86_64.rpm
[root@localhost ~]# packstack --allinone

(After packstack, EPEL repo setting (/etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo) will be added.)
