wget command getting timed out – while trying to update rpm for oracle on linux server

Wget timed out usually indicates that you’re using an HTTP proxy to access the outside world. If so, you will need to configure the http_proxy environment variable for wget to use the same proxy. Add the below settings and it should resolve the issue.

export http_proxy=http://server-ip:port/
E.g: export http_proxy=

This should fix the wget time out issue.

Note: similarly you can do this for ftp_proxy as well.
