Hello Jason,

Using Yum, I can do the following command and download both Epel-release and clamav. This of course, downloads 99.2 (not the beta version).

yum install -y epel-release
yum install -y clamav

Duck]# yum install -y epel-release

  epel-release.noarch 0:6-8 

I am wondering if it is because you capitalized the ‘E’ in epel-release. Try it by lowercasing it, to see if it works.
Double checking- capitalizing the ‘e’ in epel-release finds no results.

Thank you,

Tom McCourt
