Docker:curl#6 - "Could not resolve host:; Unknown error"?

created at 06-03-2022 views: 40


The host network is normal and can be pinged. But after entering the docker container, it cannot be pinged, and anything in yum reports the following error:

[root@a4742adb2225 yum.repos.d]# yum install vim
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, ovl
Could not retrieve mirrorlist error was
14: curl#6 - "Could not resolve host:; Unknown error"

 One of the configured repositories failed (Unknown),
 and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only
 safe thing yum can do is fail. There are a few ways to work "fix" this:

     1. Contact the upstream for the repository and get them to fix the problem.

     2. Reconfigure the baseurl/etc. for the repository, to point to a working
        upstream. This is most often useful if you are using a newer
        distribution release than is supported by the repository (and the
        packages for the previous distribution release still work).

     3. Run the command with the repository temporarily disabled
            yum --disablerepo=<repoid> ...

     4. Disable the repository permanently, so yum won't use it by default. Yum
        will then just ignore the repository until you permanently enable it
        again or use --enablerepo for temporary usage:

            yum-config-manager --disable <repoid>
            subscription-manager repos --disable=<repoid>

     5. Configure the failing repository to be skipped, if it is unavailable.
        Note that yum will try to contact the repo. when it runs most commands,
        so will have to try and fail each time (and thus. yum will be be much
        slower). If it is a very temporary problem though, this is often a nice

            yum-config-manager --save --setopt=<repoid>.skip_if_unavailable=true

Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base/7/x86_64

I've searched around the internet, but none of them solved my problem.


The firewall did not enable the packet forwarding function, and the two lines of code solved the problem.

sudo firewall-cmd --add-masquerade --permanent
sudo firewall-cmd --reload
