[Solved] Error: Package: jenkins-2.303.1-1.1.noarch (jenkins) Requires: daemonize --skip-broken to work

Issue:- 

The issue occurs when trying to install the jenkins on the Centos7 EC2 Instance in the AWS.

 # yum install jenkins -y


Error:- 

 --> Finished Dependency Resolution  
 Error: Package: jenkins-2.303.1-1.1.noarch (jenkins)  
       Requires: daemonize  
  You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem  
  You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest  


Cause:-

Basically daemonize runs a command as a Daemon in the Centos. Since the package is missing in the version of the Centos you running thats why this error is coming. Think of it like a dependency which is required by the Jenkins to run but since you missing on the Daemonize thats why its giving the error.


Resolution:-

Daemonize doesn't ship in the default repository thats why yum is not able to resolve it. You will need to install the Daemonize from the Epel repository which is the extra package for enterprise linux as

 # yum install epel-release -y  
 # yum install daemonize -y  
 Than you can continue on installing the Jenkins as  
 # yum install jenkins -y

    6. So Daemonize package is not installed please run following commands

      yum install epel-release -y
      yum install daemonize -y
      yum install jenkins -y

      After this the daemonize should be installed and jenkins should be installed just fine.
      You can verify by running

      yum list installed daemonize

    7. Please share execution of the cmds and output after execution along with error details.

    8. if you are using AWS instance then use this steps,
      # amazon-liux-extrass install epel
      # yum install daemonize -y
      # yum install jenkins

      Delete
    9. Step1. Create the YumRepo File.

      vim /etc/yum.repos.d/epelfordaemonize.repo

      [daemonize]
      baseurl=https://download-ib01.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/
      gpgcheck=no
      enabled=yes
      Step2. yum install daemonize -y

      Step3. yum install jenkins -y

      Delete
    10. Try this command " sudo amazon-linux-extras install epel " , then execute yum install daemonize -y
      It worked for me.

      Delete
    11. It worked thanks a lot. Cheers.

  4. you will need to have that repo to run epel/demonize, make a repo of it and then install jenkins like below

    Step1. Create the YumRepo File.

    vim /etc/yum.repos.d/epelfordaemonize.repo

    [daemonize]
    baseurl=https://download-ib01.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/7/x86_64/
    gpgcheck=no
    enabled=yes
    Step2. yum install daemonize -y

    Step3. yum install jenkins java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel -y

  6. After I installed epel-release and daemonize, I was able to install Jenkins successfully but it is not running actively, it is showing active (exited). Please how do I resolve that?
