Listing Repositories

You can list the enabled repositories by running one of the following commands:

  • RHEL compatible: yum repolist
  • Ubuntu: apt-get does not include a command to display sources, but you can determine sources by reviewing the contents of /etc/apt/sources.list and any files contained in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/.
The following shows an example of the output of yum repolist on a CentOS 7 sytstem:
repo id               repo name                                           status
