Error: No package erlang available.

If you are trying to install Erlang on CentOS 6.x or 5.x you might get below errors

[root@abcdef install]# yum install erlang
Failed to set locale, defaulting to C
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base:
 * extras:
 * updates:
Setting up Install Process
No package erlang available.
Error: Nothing to do

If you are getting these errors mean you don't have RHEL EPEL Repo updated to fetch Erlang builds. So you will need to update your repo. 

CentOS 5.x :

sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-5*.rpm epel-release-5*.rpm

CentOS 6.x :

sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-6*.rpm epel-release-6*.rpm

Now You can try installing Erlang with command below

# yum install -y erlang


  1. On Centos/7 do the following:

    sudo wget


    sudo wget


    sudo rpm -Uvh remi-release-7*.rpm epel-release-7*.rpm
