YUM - List installed and available packages

The yum list command will list both installed and available packages in the repositories you have installed. The repositories you have installed will be listed at the beginning of the output. It is very common to install the EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) repository.

~]$ yum list | head
 * base: centos.mirrors.tds.net
 * centos-sclo-rh: mirror.den01.meanservers.net
 * centos-sclo-sclo: mirror.den01.meanservers.net
 * epel: mirror.team-cymru.com
 * extras: centos.mirrors.tds.net
 * updates: mirror.genesishosting.com


Something like this will be returned, which shows the package name, version, and repository the package is in.

ansible.noarch         2.9.18-1.el7                        epel
openssh-server.x86_64  2.4.6-45.el7.centos.4               base
openssl.x86_64         2.4.6-45.el7.centos.4               base
krb5.x86_64            2.4.6-45.el7.centos.4               updates
nginx.x86_64           2.4.6-45.el7.centos.4               base
httpd.x86_64           2.4.6-45.el7.centos.4               base


The yum list installed command can also be used to list only installed packages.

yum list installed | grep -i httpd
. . .
