I do wonder which way to go now. Both are similar.

UBI:8 way:

11:21 (0s) hrw at puchatek:~$ docker run --rm -it -u root 

[root at 1dcf18241722 /]# dnf remove -y subscription-manager

[root at 1dcf18241722 /]# dnf install -y 

[root at 1dcf18241722 /]# dnf install -y 

[root at 1dcf18241722 /]# dnf distrosync -y
