Centos 8 install fail due to missing Pulp repo

Hi Guys,

I see there are EL8 repos for Foreman 2.1 and Katello 3.16 but I cannot install Katello and Foreman as te pulp repo does not have an EL8 build yet.

Errors during downloading metadata for repository 'pulp':
  - Status code: 404 for https://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/pulp/pulp/stable/2.21/8/x86_64/repodata/repomd.xml (IP:

Are there any work around to this or is Katello not working for Centos 8 yet?

Pulp 2 will never work with EL8. The EL8 packages you do see were experiments but Katello doesn’t officially support running on EL8 yet. This is work in progress and we hope to have something for Katello 3.18. It was slow because it had to completely replace Pulp 2 with Pulp 3.


I think it make sense now as I see Centos 8 for Foreman 2.1 but nothing on the Katello page for EL8.

I’ve got a working 2.0 on EL7 and will continue using that in production until EL8 is fully supported. I did not realise the EL8 packages are experimental.
