Improve your infrastructure server collect updates

We need to create an exercise that involves installing a kernel update.

Therefore we cannot live with a big repository called repo. We need to add one selinux compatible called updates. In our quirky Macbook based environment we will have to reboot our infrastructure server so it has Internet exposure. Your mileage may vary. In the end we will have to  modify our repo file to include updates.

More fun than any one human should be allowed to have.

Vaguely I remember a plugin allowing for download only so I start searching.

Below is what it looks like in progress:

Next we need to createrepo and feed the selinux beast.

The kernel update exercise will be a different post.
