      Please check you’ve correct Network DNS Name Servers in your /etc/resolv.conf file, if not added it. It’s something related to your network issue..

    Many thanks for the excellent script and post! I am now using Version 51.0.2704.106 (64-bit) to post this comment – although I did have to run the script twice on my RHEL 6.7 system (not that surprising really, since I built the system ~2011 with a much earlier RHEL version and have been upgrading it ever since.

    I first did a dry run, using the -n option, and found that I needed rpmdevtools installed; I did this manually outside the script, and then did another dry run. The second dry run returned no errors, so I removed the -n option and went for the full install.

    It got pretty far, but errored complaining about “Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found” (lib* files in /opt/google/chrome/lib/) and then removed everything it had installed (including the old Chrome version, 37-something) from my system. With nothing to lose, I ran the script again, and it worked as advertised!
