Amazon 2023 Does not support epel

29 May 2023 - rich

Basically, if you are a RedHat/Fedora/Centos/Rocky/etc Linux person, DO NOT run Amazon Linux 2023. It does not support EPEL.

Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) is a project in the Fedora community with the objective of creating a large array of packages for enterprise-level Linux operating systems. The project has primarily produced RHEL and CentOS packages.

Amazon Linux 2 features a hight level of compatibility with CentOS 7. As a result, many EPEL7 packages work on Amazon Linux 2.

However, Amazon Linux 2023 does NOT support EPEL or EPEL-like repositories.
