Hi,

thanks for your report.

Do you have mysql57-community-release packaged installed?

Check with:

$ rpm -q  mysql57-community-release

Seems like a typo in the doc page, should have been:

 sudo yum update mysql57-community-release

Pinged docs team.

[root@mysql-57 ~]# rpm -q  mysql57-community-release
mysql57-community-release-el7-7.noarch

Yes seems to be a Doc issue.
Changing Category.

#yum install mysql-community*

Hi Johnny Fu!

A simple workaround would be to change 

# yum install mysql-community*

to

# yum install mysql-community*5.7*

or just install the package you want (all deps will follow any way), for example for server package:

# yum install mysql-community-server
