Yes, but it's bit messy. I'm past that issue but if I 
remember correctly - while still being on "regular" release 
and installing one package first and not the other, as 
wanting to migrate to stream, one would end up with 
conflicting dependencies. I cannot remember which of the two 
would have to be installed first. That was a few weeks ago, 
but obvious was that some deps chains there between the two 
were malfunctioning/in conflict.

Also while on this case - perhaps related but if not then I 
make apologies: when migrating to stream I ended up with 
centos-linux-repos-8-2.el8.noarch VS 
centos-stream-repos-8-2.el8.noarch on different boxes.
All involved boxes are Centos Streams, yet here also some 
deps logics are broken: systems with 'centos-linux-repos' 
seems to be behind, dis-synchronized with what systems with 
centos-stream-repos get.
On those "behind" boxes I do:
-> $ dnf install centos-stream-repos
No match for argument: centos-stream-repo

Like I mentioned, that box reports itself to be "stream".

Even if it's not a problem in/with infra I thought I'd share 
here, just in case someone reading might realize - is having 
the same issue.

many thanks, L
