Hi Leon,

Just have a look at /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Sources.repo for AppStream :


But clearly if you browse this repo, you can see that it is (was when
you'll read that mail probably) a symlink to
https://vault.centos.org/centos/8.0.1905/ , while it seems other sources
releases were pushed to different directory and pkg you're searching for
seems to be

So now the issue seems to be that there was a missing /centos/8/ symlink
change to /8.2.2004/ at release time (and even for 8.1.1911 too btw).
Something to add for Johnny and Brian for new release (and even the
upcoming 8.3.2011 one, just *around* the corner) ;-)

PS : I  just quickly created missing symlinks for now but something to
be adapted at the "push script side" somewhere
