You clearly don't. There is work going on to try to clean up these things, but it's not simple to do. It's not like everyone has a freaking Ph.D. in dependency management. The issue here is that CentOS repository structure is stupid, and we can't easily reuse the same repo definitions to upgrade from CentOS Linux 8 to CentOS Stream 8. That's why the upgrade guide lists that users need to use "dnf swap" to switch repository definitions. Also, your revisionism of Red Hat Linux history has already been thoroughly disproven and I wish you'd stop it. CentOS Linux 8 is continuing through the end of the year, and CentOS 9 will only be available in the Stream variant. : https://www.centos.org/centos-stream/#converting-from-centos-linux-to-centos-stream : https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2021-February/076419.html : https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2021-February/076425.html -- 真実はいつも一つ！/ Always, there's only one truth!
