We will need to install wget in order to fix the issue -bash: wget: command not found on CentOS by running yum command below:

yum install wget

And the output is similar to this:

[root@localhost ~]# wget http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/scripts/install.sh
-bash: wget: command not found
[root@localhost ~]# yum install wget
