Installation on Centos 8


Thanks for this great software! :star_struck:

So far I have tested it in a Centos 7 VM and it works really well.
Unfortunately when I try to install it on Centos 8 with

yum install yum-plugin-copr
yum copr enable copart/restic

I get this message

Do you really want to enable [y/N]: y
Error: This repository does not have any builds yet so you cannot enable it now.

Can anybody help?

Hey @uok and welcome to the restic community! :slight_smile:

From what I can see in this error message is that your package manager is trying to fetch restic from a non-official repository.
And from the logs it doesn’t have any restic binary for you at all (?!).

So I would suggest you head over to the GitHub Page at and go to the release and fetch the binary there directly instead.

Hope this helps.

I came here after following the steps in
Thanks for the suggestion, binary works!

Is the Centos Repo maintained by @fd0 or another member in this forum?

If it would be maintained by @fd0 then it would be “official” :wink:
We had this discussion a couple months back. See this post:

So I would recommend contacting the person at the email address so they can fix whatever seems broken.
