I have installed 1.12.8-10.el8_2, but when trying to install dbus-devel it is not available for that version, only 1.12.8-9.el8, which is also not available.

Problem: cannot install the best candidate for the job

  - nothing provides dbus-daemon = 1:1.12.8-9.el8 needed by dbus-devel-1:1.12.8-9.el8.x86_64

(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)
