I can't seem to update any packages using the "sudo dnf update" command.

I simply get this error

warning: /var/cache/dnf/ol6_latest-2bddc48c5fc3b48d/packages/redhat-release-server-6Server- Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID ec551f03: NOKEY
Curl error (37): Couldn't read a file:// file for file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle [Couldn't open file /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle]

The downloaded packages were saved in cache until the next successful transaction. You can remove cached packages by executing 'dnf clean packages'.

That means your are missing Oracle's package signing key (virtualbox). Try to follow the instructions here to import it:

yup! i removed the oracle repo from /etc/yum.repos.d/public-yum-ol6.repo and everything was back to normal! :) thank you

Or if you (want to) use the repo, just import their key.

I think I manually added the key and I must have made some mistake. Anyways I decided to use virtualization kvm for now. Seems easier ;)
