Install the Sqoop Package


  1. You must have at least core Hadoop on your system. See Configure the Remote Repositories for more information.

  2. Verify the HDP repositories are available:

    yum list sqoop

    The output should list at least one Sqoop package similar to the following:

    sqoop.noarch <version>

    If yum responds with "Error: No matching package to list" as shown below, yum cannot locate a matching RPM. This can happen if the repository hosting the HDP RPMs is unavailable, or has been disabled. Follow the instructions at Configure the Remote Repositories to configure either a public or private repository before proceeding.

    Error: No matching package to list.


On all nodes where you plan to use the Sqoop client, install the following RPMs or packages:

  • For RHEL/CentOS/Oracle Linux:

    yum install sqoop

  • For SLES:

    zypper install sqoop

  • For Ubuntu:

    apt-get install sqoop
