The Red Hat explanation is blocked. All one can read is

" This issue generally occurs if client system is able to commun...
Subscriber exclusive content"


(1)  Should the Red Hat link be replaced by a Centos one ?

(2)  Why am I seeing a 'SCL' URL when I have not subscribed to Software

(3)  I did not get the error when updating other C6 installations around
Europe, probably because they used different sources, so is the error
caused by a faulty mirror file ?

Despite the error, I successfully installed
