Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository
I've inherited some AWS EC2 linux systems to patch and maintain and am having some issues with connectivity to the yum repository. I've done a bit of trawling before posting this as yum connectivity issues are quite commonplace but am still scratching my head.
I have four linux EC2 instances - all are in the same security group and share the same NACL.
They are private, so have no public IP and are reached via tunneling through from a Bastion.
The Bastion has internet access and has no issues with pulling down updates.
One of the four instances connects and pulls updates from yum fine and the other three chuck out this error;
I cannot see any configuration differences between the four servers. I've checked iptables and all seems fine. I've run yum clean all, etc..
What am I missing here? If all of them weren't working I'd feel better about this, but the fact that one can update from yum and the rest can't is throwing me! I've been scratching my head for some time, so much so that I have to actually post a thread here to ask for thoughts and ideas. It's going to be something obvious but I just can't see it.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks :)

Verify that the Satellite or Proxy server has a fully-qualified domain name (FQDN), and that the CommonName () in the SSL certificate used by Apache is set to the FQDN:
For a self-signed Satellite certificate, the field should be FQDN for and and these two fields should be matching,
For a third-party SSL certificate, the field should be FQDN in ,
Also verify that the ssl.conf configuration file is pointing to the correct files:
Ensure that in the client system's file uses the FQDN of the Satellite or Proxy server, e.g.:
If the system connects to RHN via an http proxy, ensure that is configured with the correct http_proxy information:
If there is a duplicate file of , remove it from
