#1

I am on CentOS Linux. Some packages are skipped and not installed with yum command. How do I update and install such packages using yum command i.e. install skipping specific packages from yum?


#2

if target packages are not installed via yum. it means they are not listed on your using-repo. kindly make a repo for them or then install their rpm package directory via #rpm -ivh.


#3

You mean exclude certain packages such as htop?

yum --exclude=htop update

If you need to install or update htop later, simply omit –exclude to yum:

yum upgrare htop 
yum update

From the https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/redhat-centos-linux-yum-update-exclude-packages/

yum --disableexcludes=all update
yum --disableexcludes=all install htop
yum --disableexcludes=all update htop
