Your attitude doesn't make it easy for folks to help you. So far you 
haven't actually provided any information that might be useful in 
determining the issue.

because I wrote the config file.

The real question is why the elrepo repository is not working as 
intended for you. TBH I'm past caring as I have better things to do than 
have you waste my time when I try to help. Please don't bother
