How to Disable a Yum Repository

To disable a Yum repository, run the following command as root:

yum-config-manager --disable repository

…where repository is the unique repository ID (use yum repolist all to list available repository IDs). Similarly to yum-config-manager --enable,

you can use a glob expression to disable all matching repositories at the same time:

yum-config-manager --disable glob_expression

When successful, the yum-config-manager --disable command displays the current configuration.
