Centos 8 -> Centos Stream Upgrade

Post by tkuraku » 2020/12/08 16:17:34

Given the announcement the Centos 8 is going to be abandoned, is there an upgrade path from Centos 8 to Centos Stream? Or does this require a reinstall?

Using one of my CentOS 8 servers as a guinea pig I followed the steps outlined.

One artifact of doing so is dnf update is now giving me some additional output

Code: Select all

[~]$ sudo dnf update
Librepo version: 1.12.0 with CURL_GLOBAL_ACK_EINTR support (libcurl/7.61.1 OpenSSL/1.1.1g zlib/1.2.11 brotli/1.0.6 libidn2/2.2.0 libpsl/0.20.2 (+libidn2/2.2.0) libssh/0.9.4/openssl/zlib nghttp2/1.33.0)
Last metadata expiration check: 2:49:53 ago on Wed 09 Dec 2020 05:38:00 AM MST.
Dependencies resolved.
Nothing to do.
Complete!
Any idea what's generating the 'new'

Code: Select all

and how do I silence it?

Just curious if anyone has found a solution?

well... we've warned everyone that Stream is not CentOS, its a beta product for RHEL. It shouldn't be called CentOS Stream, it should be called RHEL Beta Stream.

Should be called Scream rather than Stream.
I'm not a complete idiot. There's still a few pieces missing.

To this day I've continued to have that additional output when executing dnf commands.

While investigating the issue posted here about not having the most recent kernel I discovered something.
The instructions seem to have been changed today. Per the Wayback Machine,last week the commands were:

Code: Select all

root@centos-linux# dnf install centos-release-stream

root@centos-linux# dnf swap centos-{linux,stream}-repos

root@centos-linux# dnf distro-sync

root@centos-stream# cat /etc/centos-release
CentOS Stream release 8
I revisited https://www.centos.org/centos-stream/ just now and the commands are:

Code: Select all

[root@centos ~]# dnf swap centos-linux-repos centos-stream-repos

[root@centos ~]# dnf distro-sync
My shell history doesn't go back far enough, but just in case I re-executed the dnf swap and then dnf distro-sync and the updated kernel that I was missing showed up as available. Something was clearly amiss when I thought I had successfully changed over from CentOS 8 to CentOS Stream release 8 because about 380 packages needed to be Updated, Downgraded or Installed.

After rebooting, the extra output from sudo dnf update, i.e.

Code: Select all

Librepo version: 1.12.0 with CURL_GLOBAL_ACK_EINTR support (libcurl/7.61.1 OpenSSL/1.1.1g zlib/1.2.11 brotli/1.0.6 libidn2/2.2.0 libpsl/0.20.2 (+libidn2/2.2.0) libssh/0.9.4/openssl/zlib nghttp2/1.33.0)
is not longer output.
