After a fresh install of Oracle Linux 7.4 and trying to run a 'sudo yum update,' I get:
One of the configured repositories failed (Latest Unbreakable Enterprise Linux Server 7 Server (x86_64)
Following the recommendations following the error didn't help, and this post suggested trying a 'sudo yum clean,' but this didn't fix it either.
Checking if I have network connectivity, it seems I can't ping www.google.com or ping 188.8.131.52. I've come across this before with RHEL/CentOS installs and forgetting to enable the network interface options during install. Checking /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* the ONBOOT property was set to "no." Changing it to "yes" and rebooting did the trick.
