Configuring EPEL repo and setting it as default repo.

I am using RHEL 6, but with no RHN subscription. I tried installing the EPEL repo, it is enabled under yum repolist but when I try a sample search such as yum search nginx , there's a string of errno 14 PYCURL error 6 .

When I tried yum list installed, it didn't work because it defaults to the RHN repo and gave me this error : Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml)

Hence, I tried disabling the RHN repo instead. yum-config-manager --disable InstallMedia

However, when I tried the same nginx search and yum list installed commands, this error appears : Error: Cannot retrieve metalink for repository: epel. Please verify its path and try again.

Any guidance is greatly appreciated =) .

yum-complete-transaction - attempt to complete failed or aborted Yum transactions SYNOPSIS
yum-complete-transaction [options] GENERAL OPTIONS
-h, --help Help; display a help message and then quit. --cleanup-only Only clean up only transaction journal files and exit. DESCRIPTION
yum-complete-transaction is a program which finds incomplete or aborted yum transactions on a system and attempts to complete them. It looks at the transaction-all* and transaction-done* files which can normally be found in /var/lib/yum if a yum transaction aborted in the middle of execution. If it finds more than one unfinished transaction it will attempt to complete the most recent one first. You can run it more than once to clean up all unfinished transactions. FILES
As yum-complete-transaction uses YUM libraries for retrieving all the information, it relies on YUM configuration for its default values like which repositories to use. Consult YUM documentation for details: /etc/yum.conf /etc/yum/repos.d/ /var/cache/yum/ SEE ALSO
yum.conf (5) AUTHORS
See the Authors file included with this program. BUGS
There are of course no bugs, but should you find any, you should first consult the FAQ section on and if unsuccessful in finding a resolution contact the mailing list: To file a bug use for Fedora/RHEL/Centos related bugs and for all other bugs.
