    Are there steps to complete Step 2: backup of current yum setup?

    I have attempted several methods to try this, but still get the same error as noted.

      You could simply run the below command…
      sudo mv /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo.bak

    On some research would the command be something like this to achieve a backup that would allow the error to proceed?

    sudo cp /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo.bak

      Yep, your command is correct. You could also simply rename the directory to CentOS-Base.repo.bak using the same command, simply replacing “cp” with “mv”
