I'm trying to provisioning an CentOS 8 host on Satellite 6.6.
The configuration use a default kickstart, default templates and CentOS 8 kickstart.
In CentOS 8 Product are AppStream, AppStream kickstart, BaseOS, Extras, PowerTools, Centoplus and kickstart defined.
The following errors appears in VM console: Error setting up software source and Error checking software selection -> Please see attached file: anaconda_installation_menu.jpg
More info was found in /tmp/anaconda.log. Please see the file: *tmp_error.jpg *.

All repos was refresh, metadata recreate but the problem occurs. The network subnet are the same as other RHEL 7 servers and it is was I don't understand where is the problem.
As someone any Idea where could be the problem?

Thanks in advance an regards,




this is known problem which is currently being worked in the upstream

A workaround is to add additional AppStream repository by editing a template. For more info:

Oh I just saw you are trying to install from Katello (synced) repository. That's a different case, in that case I suggest to file a bugzilla on "content management" component.

Hi Lukas, Thanks for the advice and infos. Now that I know it's a bug, I don't need to troubleshoot my configs anymore. Like as you said, I've opened up a bugzilla (1819672). Regards, J.

Hello, apologies but I haven't realized that RHEL is the only supported OS in Satellite. I suggest to reach out to the upstream community:

Hi, No problem and however this is about Satellite. Ok, I'll check with the community.

Are you having the same issues provisioning RHEL 8 systems from Satellite that you have attempting to provision CentOS 8?
