Note: Please do this on a test VM.

My issue:

I took the output of the following command

$ yum list installed | xargs -n3 | column -t  | tail -n +3 |cut -d' ' -f1 >

from a CentOS 7.7 Installation.

and did

$ dnf install $(cat packages.list) --setopt=strict=0

on Freshly installed Minimal CentOS 8 VM.

When I reboot I get

Failed to switch root: Specified switch root path /sysroot does not seem to
be an OS tree. os-release file is missing.

What am I doing wrong?

packages.list attached
