@lest, @britcey, looks like CentOS 8 has reached EOL and AppStream repository is no longer working (“CentOS Linux 8 will reach End Of Life (EOL) on December 31st, 2021.”):

# docker run --rm -i -t bash

Any suggestions how to proceed from here? We can either use CentOS Stream or any of other RHEL clones, I’ve replaced CentOS with Oracle Linux quite successfully at the company currently I’m working for.

Until this is resolved, I guess all our builds will fail.

@lest it is possible to resolve this issue? Actually we stale for a weeks, even for CentOS 7 builds

Not sure if it makes much sense to build packages on multiple distributions, our RPMs are basically statically linked binaries with standard systemd/defaults files, they should work on any distribution that supports RPMs and systemd.
