Centos main list,
   I am working on a Centos 7 system and trying to do the following.

      yum search cups-lpd

I am getting the following

Could not retrieve mirrorlist 
error was
12: Timeout on 
(28, 'Resolving timed out after 30382 milliseconds')

  One of the configured repositories failed (Unknown),
  and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the 
  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 

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

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

             yum-config-manager --disable <repoid>

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

             yum-config-manager --save 

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


I am using cups on this Centos 7 machine.  Which prints fine from the 
Centos to my
print queue's

However I have an Sco Unix system using lpd printing that I am trying to 
send print
jobs to the Centos 7 system and those are not even getting to the 
   I get message: waiting on queue to be enabled

QUESTION FOR main list:
Is the Centos 7 "yum" commands being worked on?
When might this be fixed?
