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.

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.

Are you behind a web proxy of some sort? Perhaps your ISP uses one without you knowing?

Can you use e.g curl http://mirror.centos.org/centos/8/AppSt ... es.yaml.gz -o to retrieve the file it's complaining about?

I did try curling it; the behavior is similar. It seems to successfully download most of the file then just hangs an eventually times out.

We've found this was a Cisco FirePower rule blocking this erroneously. Thanks for looking anyway.

Would you mind posting which rule it is. I am having the same issue and have Firepower firewalls.

Thank you
