Yum – Check for update of repositories

When a new rpm is added to a yum repository server, the cache in the client machine makes the new rpm unreachable. To check for update of repositories, run the following command in the client.

  • yum clean expire-cache

 

Then you can try to search for your new rpm by

  • yum list <new rpm package>

 

Done =)

Reference: How do I get yum to see updates to a local repo without cleaning cache?
