They do not work. Missing some index file

This exemple below is good for yum repository.

You cans see the conten below

This repository does not have the structure of an RPM repository.
No sub-folders present

Hmmm this looks different from what I see on :
But shows the repomd xml so it’s definitely a yum repo :thinking:
