Error 403 Forbidden when running yum reinstall -y rh-amazon-rhui-client


I am trying to reinstall yum on RHEL 7.9 and I get the following error when running the command: sudo yum reinstall -y rh-amazon-rhui-client [Errno 14] HTTPS Error 403 - Forbidden Trying other mirror. To address this issue please refer to the below knowledge base article

If above article doesn't help to resolve this issue please open a ticket with Red Hat Support.

One of the configured repositories failed (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 Server - RH Common from RHUI (RPMs)), and yum doesn't have enough cached data to continue. At this point the only 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 problem.

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

 3. Run the command with the repository temporarily disabled
        yum --disablerepo=rhel-7-server-rhui-rh-common-rpms ...

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

        yum-config-manager --disable rhel-7-server-rhui-rh-common-rpms
        subscription-manager repos --disable=rhel-7-server-rhui-rh-common-rpms

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

        yum-config-manager --save --setopt=rhel-7-server-rhui-rh-common-rpms.skip_if_unavailable=true

failure: repodata/repomd.xml from rhel-7-server-rhui-rh-common-rpms: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try. [Errno 14] HTTPS Error 403 - Forbidden
