I've installed centos7 recently, but, when I am trying to install Mysql using the command:

yum install mysql-community-server

I keep getting Exiting on user cancel while I am not hitting any keyboard button.. here is the output:

    Downloading packages:

    Exiting on user cancel

what is the problem? why I can not install it? what is the soloution?

Try these two preliminary steps and then go for yum install mysql-community-server

  1. Firstly clean your metadata: This cleans up any xml metadata that may have been cached from any enabled repository

    $ sudo yum clean metadata

  2. Then upgrade all of your CentOS system software to the latest version

    $ sudo yum update
