Problem: unable to do a unattended install of centos 7 from CV, installer stops due to “Error selecting software selection”. This same provisioning template works as expected when using the official centos mirror. When i browse pulp/content directory in a browser i can see that the repomd directory is not the same as the official mirror-although the sync status reports complete.
i had a similar issue earlier where the images folder was not being synced, this was resolved by selecting the repo>Advanced Sync>Optimized sync.
Expected outcome: perform unattended install of centos 7 machine from CV
Foreman and Proxy versions:
katello.noarch 4.1.2-1.el8 Foreman and Proxy plugin versions:
python3-pulpcore.noarch 3.14.1-1.el8 Distribution and version:
CentOS Linux release 8.4.2105
4vCPU 16GB RAM Other relevant data:
i am using a CV i have created, which contains 2 repos, os and extra which both have successful syncs
i am using @core in my kickstart,
i can see this group exists when i navigate the published CV, under rpm packages groups
i created centos 8 and centos 8 stream products and synced the repos, then created a CV-this resulted in the install stopping with conflicting requests/nothing provides errors. This led me to https://pulp.plan.io/issues/9107
i updated katello to 220.127.116.11.1 and ran the repair script-all packages had broken metadata.
republished repository metadata for each repository and published a new version of CV
i can now perform unsttended installs using v7 and v8 CV’s
