    Error downloading packages: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

    After running sudo yum update I get the following error:

    Error downloading packages:
    1:java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless-1.8.0.181-3.b13.amzn2.x86_64: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.


    I have tried reducing the minrate and increasing the timeout parameters in /etc/yum.conf with no joy as follows:

    minrate=1
    timeout=300


    Can anyone please recommend alternative solutions for this error?

    One of your repositories is not working correctly. Judging by the package suffix it looks like it is not from an official repository. I suggest to start investigating repositories that you have enabled.
