Cannot upgrade ambari

  • #53635
    Fazlan Nazeem

    I have installed ambari server in CentoS 5.4. I need to upgrade it to version 1.5,1. Documentation says that in order to update Ambari Server version is 1.2.4 or below, we must upgrade the Ambari Server version to 1.2.5 before upgrading to version 1.5.1.

    But when I try to update it to version 1.2.5 it fails.

    I followed this documentation

    This is the output

    Can you post the contents of your /etc/yum.repos.d/ambari.repo file? You’ll want to make sure 1.2.5 updates repo is registered.
