These errors mean you don’t have the updated RHEL EPEL Repo from which to fetch Erlang builds. You need to update your repo as follows:

[vagrant@localhost /]$ sudo wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/e/epel-release-7-6.noarch.rpm

[vagrant@localhost /]$ sudo wget http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm

[vagrant@localhost /]$ sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-7*.rpm epel-release-7*.rpm


Retry installing Erlang.

[vagrant@localhost /]$ sudo yum install -y erlang
