I get this error “can’t open google-chrome-stable_current_x86_64.rpm” on Centos 7. Ideas?

Have you tried running as superuser (su or sudo)?

Basically ‘cannot open…’ really means ‘cannot find’.
When the instruction say: “locate your downloaded .rpm” the implied next step is to make that location your current working directory. (So in my case I changed to the ‘Downloads’ directory - then ran the ‘yum localinstall…’ command (as sudo).
