Re: Can't put anything on my CentOS 8 GNOME desktop?

Anything you want to do you can probably do, even if it doesn't work out of the box. Take a look at this guide.

The network connection speed is fine. During the download, it showed a speed of 3-5 MB/s; a test of the bandwidth was around 4.

Re: yum/dnf update hangs at 99% for all repo sources

For the fourth time, I'm 100% aware that yum = dnf. Let's make sure that's understood. If you'd like to explain it again just to be sure, go ahead.

Re: yum/dnf update hangs at 99% for all repo sources

Umm - your closing line - For the record, yum still works, dnf is the new package manager, though. - and still no details to help us help you.

Re: yum/dnf update hangs at 99% for all repo sources

What details do you want? It's a brand new install with literally no changes and it can't download from the mirror list. I have logs now from a new install, which again does exactly the same thing. It's timing out reaching the mirror sites. I have tried manually curling some of them and the download...

Re: yum/dnf update hangs at 99% for all repo sources
