Is it necessary to create YUM REPOSITORY to use YUM command????
The Answer for the query is YES. As the if the repository is enabled /installed, It helps to refine the packages and throws the output.
The configuration information for yum and related utilities is located at /etc/yum.conf. This file contains one mandatory [main] section, which enables you to set yum options that have global effect, and can also contain one or more [repository] sections, which allow you to set repository-specific options. However, it is recommended to define individual repositories in new or existing .repofiles in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory. The values you define in individual [repository]sections of the /etc/yum.conf file override values set in the [main] section.
This section shows you how to:
set global yum options by editing the [main] section of the /etc/yum.conf configuration file;
set options for individual repositories by editing the [repository] sections in /etc/yum.conf and .repo files in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory;
use yum variables in /etc/yum.conf and files in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory so that dynamic version and architecture values are handled correctly;
add, enable, and disable yum repositories on the command line; and
set up your own custom yum repository.
