This is not a mirrorlist, it's a repository URL.

I seem to remember it used to look for closest mirror by itself but I could be wrong. Try putting a slash after os so that it's
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/8-strea ... x86_64/os/

It sometimes takes awhile for the system to find it. Make sure you have an internet connection, when installing, ethernet and wireless are off by default. You have to first get your connection, then fill in that URL (or repo address, if you prefer).
The other option is to use a mirror near you. For example, I live in Manhattan and have friends working at NYI and they have a mirror, so I usually use that one so I can annoy them if there is a problem. You can look here for mirrors.
https://www.centos.org/download/mirrors/ By default I think it shows only 10 sites, you can change that at the top. Pick one near you and use the same pattern. For example, to use that NYI one I mentioned it's
http://mirror.nyi.net/CentOS/8-stream/BaseOS/x86_64/os/

1) Once again, the screenshots you posted show Tipo di URL: set to mirrorlist. It should be set to repository URL instead (this is how it's named in the English-language installer, Italian name for this may be different).

2) The URL itself should end in /os/, not in /Packages.

I understand but what is this repository URL that I need to enter?

For example

Code: Select all

centos.mirror.garr.it/centos/8-stream/BaseOS/x86_64/os/
