Try replacing "MySQL" with "mariadb". On my Fedora system MySQL has been replaced by mariadb which is a community branch of MySQL, and as Fedora is what Redhat and CentOS are based on I guess it'll be the same there.

yum install mariadb mariadb-server

Then make sure your server has an internet connection, and maybe run a yum update first, with a reboot, and then try installing your db server again.

yum install mysql mysql-server
(not "mysql - server")  Don't type a space in the  mysql-server  package name.

Also make sure the "-"  you use is an ASCII  minus sign,  not a  Unicode Dash symbol, or extended ASCII dash symbol   (In other words:     if  gathering the package name from documentation: type it out ---  attempting to copy and paste    something autocorrected by  MS Word  or a Web browser,  may sometimes lead to bad results)


If it still doesn't work, try:
1)
  yum clean metadata
  yum clean expire-cache

2)
  yum install mysql-server
   yum --enablerepo=*base*  install  mysql-server

If it still doesn't work;
then  I think you've been supplied a VPS with a   (messed up)  non-default Yum configuration   that  has had the CentOS6  base repositories    removed,  or "excluded".


It might be time to contact your hosting provider's support about that,   to get help restoring the  normal  standard  CentOS6   Yum configuration  that you would have gotten out of the box,   if  the VPS  hadn't been provisioned with an  unusual Yum config......


Consider adding a MariaDB repository by hand   as an alternative


cat >> /etc/yum.repos.d/MariaDB.repo   <<END
[mariadb]
name = MariaDB
baseurl = http://yum.mariadb.org/5.5/centos6-amd64
gpgkey=https://yum.mariadb.org/RPM-GPG-KEY-MariaDB
gpgcheck=1
END


yum install mariadb-server

what is in the /etc/yum.repo.d folder?
if there is a CentOS-Base.repo file can you post it?

if they used a customized the image i'm thinking they made some changes to the configuration; perhaps added exclusions so that certain packages can't be installed that way.  especially so after seeing r1soft in the repo list yum output which isn't standard as they probably use r1soft agent

@mysidia - if the default base repository was not enabled, it would have said "nothing to do" coming from the updates/epel/extras and wouldn't have said "no package x available".  base is shown in the output so it is obviously enabled and being used

@ossec - if the user wasn't running with sudo or directly as root he wouldn't have got as far as he did
