Why do you want this? - it has one year of accumulated security problems.
If you really want it, do a web search for this: centos vault

I other words, the error is that link of CentOS 8.1.1911 has not been removed yet.
The link for 8.2.2004 is the only one that makes sense at this moment.

I found this post wondering exactly the same thing the following day (October 20), being in need of 8.0.1905 specifically myself.

I feel like the replies so far have dismissed the original poster's question as silly, but it is not. The mysterious disappearance is being discussed in the Linux community of practice at Stanford University and on the developer lists of the LOCKSS project, to quote just two I have seen; other people are going to come asking the same thing. There are numerous reasons to need slightly older ISOs, to do product support for users running these versions, security research, upgrade testing, compliance certification, and more.

CentOS download mirrors have every version dating back to 2.1 in 2009 (see http://mirror.centos.org/centos/), so saying that 8.0.1905 is gone because it is not the most recent, or that the problem is not that 8.0.1905 is gone but that 8.1.1911 is not gone yet, misses the point.

There is a pinned post in this forum about the media for Stream 1905 shipping with a fairly substantial issue requiring urgent action, but 8.0.1905 is not the same as Stream 1905. Where can the mirrors and ISOs for 8.0.1905 be found?

You are mistaken. all versions other than the current ones are moved to vault.centos.org. The sole exception to this is currently 8.1 which has been forgotten. If you check the link you posted, all those directories that exists like "2.1" are empty other than a text file that says "Gone to Vault".
CentOS 6 died in November 2020 - migrate to a new version!

Nobody should be running the older versions. Support your product for the latest version.
Sure, there are legit RHEL 8.0 EUS users, but to support them you do need the RHEL 8.0 EUS.


On the educational side, one might want to learn from history. "See this old code-base? The thinking behind it was X but that did lead to flaw Y, which was found by Z and fixed with W." However, that does not need more than the sources?
