RHEL 8 Beta repos are empty

Latest response

Hello.

I have a developer subscription for RHEL 8.1 Beta and it was working fine for some time. Yesterday I wanted to install some new packages and spotted that repos are empty:

yum repolist
Updating Subscription Management repositories.
Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 8.1 - x86_64 687 kB/s | 3.5 MB 00:05
repo id repo name status
epel Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux 8.1 - x86_64 3,218
rhel-8-for-x86_64-appstream-beta-rpms Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 for x86_64 - AppStream Beta (RPMs) 0
rhel-8-for-x86_64-baseos-beta-rpms Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 for x86_64 - BaseOS Beta (RPMs) 0

There are 0 packages both in baseos and appstream repos.

I tried to view repositories directly using curl:

curl -k https://cdn.redhat.com/content/beta/rhel8/8/x86_64/baseos/os/Packages --key /etc/pki/entitlement/1234599418869755276-key.pem --cert /etc/pki/entitlement/1234599418869755276.pem

As I understand there are no packages in the repository now. Is this expected or not? Did something bad happen to RHEL 8 Beta?

Hi Vasilii,

RHEL 8.1 Final has been released ! Please un-register the Beta system and install the final edition ... upgrading is not possible. :)
