If you are using a different flavor of Linux, you probably do not have the required Corretto RPM repository. Therefore you may first need to import the Corretto public key and then add the repository to the system list. For most systems, you must run the following commands:
sudo rpm --import https://yum.corretto.aws/corretto.key
sudo curl -L -o /etc/yum.repos.d/corretto.repo https://yum.corretto.aws/corretto.repo
After that, you should be able to run the
yum install command.
