Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 6.9 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

FROM CLIENT SIDE:


Clients can not get  updates through the SW Proxy and shows "0"packages at the repositories:

 This is an error stating that the proxy host itself (xxx.x.x.x) is denied access to a URL on the proxy via it's FQDN (PROXY_SERVER.DOMAIN.com).

Changes

 Manually modification on the squid proxy configuration, so /etc/squid/squid.conf file differs from that which yum was trying to install, which is saved as /etc/squid/squid.conf.rpmnew
