Need access to run yum command in DSX environment

I am unable to run yum command in DSX environment. I need yum command access to install some packages for performing data preparation and running analytic machine models.

Here's the error I am seeing when I type in "!yum install sox" command in DSX notebook:

Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix>
Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix>
Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>]
ImportError: No module named site
