Unable to find or install amazon-linux-extras

Super User Asked by Arjun on August 8, 2020

I am trying to install nginx on AWS EC2 instance. As this is done using amazon-linux-extras as per AWS documentation, I tried that. But I am unable to find the package or install it using yum install(it says that the package is already available but I am unable to find it using ‘which’.

Below is the terminal output. Please help.

[[email protected] ~]$ which amazon-linux-extras

/usr/bin/which: no amazon-linux-extras in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/home/arjun/.local/bin:/home/arjun/bin)

[[email protected] ~]$ sudo yum -y install amazon-linux-extras

[sudo] password for arjun:
