Note

If you have enabled a RHEL 7 Optional or a RHEL 7 Supplementary repository before an in-place upgrade, Leapp enables the RHEL 8 CodeReady Linux Builder or RHEL 8 Supplementary repositories, respectively.

If you decide to use custom repositories, enable them per instructions in Configuring custom repositories.
