Can't install Foreman with Katello on Almalinux 8

I’m getting grupos ou módulos ausentes: katello:el8, pulpcore:el8 (missing groups or modules)
when running # dnf module enable katello:el8 pulpcore:el8.

Other relevant data:
I’m following the CentOS Stream 8 steps on this guide Quickstart Guide for Foreman with Katello on RHEL/CentOS.

Hi @carlosdaniel-cyber,

Did you run the 3 dnf install https://... already before you try to enable the modules?
The metadata for the modules should be part of the katello and pulpcore repos, which get added by the katello-repos-latest.rpm :+1:

Yes, they’re already installed.

Okay, did you use the 3.4 or 3.5 release once? (would take a short look if it also happens to me)

I’ve tried 3.5 but it didn’t work too, so I’m trying 3.4 now with an old snapshot of the VM.

Yup, looks to work, I have tested that on a Rocky Linux 8 container right now, but that shouldn’t really make a difference.

dnf install
dnf install
dnf install
dnf module enable katello:el8 pulpcore:el8
dnf module list --enabled

And the result is:

Maybe retry, and if it still does not work, look at the repo cache and configuration (yum.repos.d), oh and dnf module list of course (to make sure the metadata is up to date also run an extra dnf clean all)

LOL. It turned out I just had to move foreman* katello* puppet* repos to a proper directory (because of network certificates, etc.). Anyways, thanks for the help!
