Hi, I'm afraid your mirror's directory layout does not quite fulfill the 
requirements. http://repos.cianhost.net/ shows directories base, 
centosplus, extras, updates which seem to contain packages from the 
respective 7.6.1810 repositories, but mirrors should have much more 
content than those repositories. See for example 

I'm not sure how you got your content, but perhaps you used reposync. 
That is not going to work, please use rsync instead. Something like 
"rsync -avzH --progress rsync://mirror-hk.koddos.net/centos/ 
/var/www/html/centos" might work for you. Change /var/www/html/centos 
according to your local configuration, and make sure the target 
directory (centos) exists before rsyncing. You can use any mirror 
offering rsync as a source for your initial sync, see the list at 

Speaking of rsync, rsync://repos.cianhost.net/ does not seem to work:

$ rsync rsync://repos.cianhost.net/
rsync: failed to connect to repos.cianhost.net ( 
Connection refused (111)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(125) 

Additionally, rsync URLs require the module name in the URL, so I would 
recommend configuring your rsync daemon so that the URL pointing to 
CentOS files would be rsync://repos.cianhost.net/centos/

Please let us know when these issues have been resolved. Thanks!
