?Do you see anything in yum.log or /var/log/messages that are related to this? Perhaps you
can try verbose installation to see what the error is.

Subject: Ambari installation problem on EC2 RHEL 7.2 instance

Hello Everyone,

I'm having troubles in trying to install Ambari on an EC2 Amazon instance.
The OS version is the following:

NAME="Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server"
VERSION="7.2 (Maipo)"
PRETTY_NAME="Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 7.2 (Maipo)"

First I've added the repository as mentioned into documentation by the command:
sudo wget -nv
-O /etc/yum.repos.d/ambari.repo

Then I've tried to install Ambari Server via yum:
sudo yum install ambari-server

with the following output:
Yum tries to install the following Ambari release:
ambari-server | x86_64 | | Updates-ambari-

I'm getting the following error:
Downloading packages:
ambari-server-  | 385 MB  00:00:08
Running transaction check
Running transaction test
Transaction test succeeded
Running transaction
  Installing : ambari-server-   1/1
Error unpacking rpm package ambari-server-
error: unpacking of archive failed: cpio: mkdir Verifying  :
ambari-server-   1/1

  ambari-server.x86_64 0:


So I've tried to update the distro with:
sudo yum update
but I had the same result as the installation process via Yum

So I had built the rpm package directly from source code but I'm getting the same error.

The same procedures (installation from repo and from sources) works properly on a Centos 7.X
and Centos 6.X.

Has Someone have any idea about how to solve this problem?

Thank you!
